BBC Concert Orchestra
Barry Wordsworth

As the CD notes by Mervyn Cooke aptly put it, this music represents a lost age of innocently witty film writing. As ever Chandos has done this repertoire proud with a luminous and full-bodied recording.

Stanley Black was an unsung stalwart of British film music who died in 2002. Here he is remembered in some fine premiere recordings by Chandos. Horror scores such as the preposterous Blood of the Vampire, the cross-channel swimming drama Stormy Crossing, and highly effective good-time caper music for Cliff Richards The Young Ones are all highlights from an enterprising disc. Barry Wordsworth steers the BBC Concert Orchestra with unerring agility.
