Give Me a Smile: Songs and Music of WWII
Nearly 75 years ago, the German Luftwaffe tried to bomb Great Britain into submission. It never happened. British courage and resourcefulness triumphed. These events are celebrated in music and song on this Carl Davis Collection. Here are the songs people sang, the film scores they loved and heard on the radio. A brilliant cast of soloists together with the BBC Concert Orchestra play and sing their hearts out just as people did in 1940. The 18 tracks on this unique CD include Wish Me Luck as You Wave Me Goodbye • Goodnight Children Everywhere • Bless ‘em All • The White Cliffs of Dover, and more.
