Pete King’s arrangement analysed by Robert Walton
For many years now my Guild collection of the “Golden Age Of Light Music” has been providing me with a perfect soundtrack for afternoon tea. But more than that, it has become something of an everyday quiz for country folk, in my case living on a farm at the edge of Europe in the far west of Ireland. I try to identify the tunes, composers, arrangers and orchestras from a vast treasure trove of titles. This virtual ‘university’ of music helps to maintain the brain as well as entertain.
Very fine arrangement, even if generically reminiscent of the work of all our favorites - Robert Farnon, Percy Faith, David Rose, etc.
A reference is made to a "spellbinding tune; I personally would prefer to say a spellbinding setting which one can completely immerse oneself. It is more than just the melody - rather it is the very subtle shift of harmonies that carries us along, and for me is what much if not all light music is about.
Once again, thanks for calling this to my attention, Robert.
