Lovers can often be tongue-tied when attempting to express their feelings. Luckily, generations of songwriters have provided ready-made examples of what to say or sing when affairs of the heart have us at a loss for words. With three discs full of timeless rock'n'roll love songs, there is sure to be a 'special song' here in this compilation for everyone to enjoy. Truly, this is the soundtrack of our lives.
This is a 32 track collection from Petula Clark. All tracks are re-recordings. It is not noted when these tracks were recorded but her voice is great and the instrumentation is good also. Casual listeners may want to look for a single CD collection of her original recordings. Fans may be interested in this more extensive collection.
Most of this disc is for fans of Holst only – after all, how many almost unaccompanied part songs can any human being stand? – but on at least one song, this disc is for every spiritual human being on the planet. O Spiritual Pilgrim, Holst's setting of six lines from the "Fourth Song of The Gates of Damascus," was one of his last works and its purity is as sublime as its text. While anyone but a Holst fan will lose interest in this disc before the Choral Folk Songs (6) at its end – after all, how many superbly sung and lovingly performed part songs can any human being stand? – anyone with an immortal soul should hear O Spiritual Pilgrim.
