Product Description

Re-creation of the entertainment of Dickens’ day – soprano, tenor, baritone, violin, piano each highlighting different favourites of the period.  A hundred years ago parlour soirees were a popular form of entertainment.  Groups of friends would gather at each other’s homes to enjoy an evening of music, taking it in turns to perform.  In this recreation of a typical Victorian parlour party the artists include a lady who sings soprano, and favours the lyrical while the tenor enjoys songs with spirit and character.  The baritone has a talent for the current popular classics and the violinist lends an insinuating obligato to certain of the songs.  A sparkling piano accompaniment is provided – and pianistic interludes enable the vocalists to rest between their labours.Total time: 65:06 “A sweet unpretentious programme, easy to listen to” Lucano – American Record Guide
