Britain's Choice - DOUBLE CD Album

Britain's Choice - DOUBLE CD Album

This double CD album of 25 tracks is the complete set of recordings Sir Vivian Dunn made with the Light Music Society orchestra in 1970. Originally produced as two separate LPs, PERCY GRAINGER and BRITAIN'S CHOICE, this exquisite collection heralded a new era of popularity for British light music, a trend which has continued thanks to the demand for these recordings by radio listeners.
