The world of British Light Music is fortunate in having so many gifted composers regularly contributing to the genre. During the second half of the 20th century many new writers brought fresh ideas and enthusiasms to a particularly British style of music, in the process providing a forceful momentum which has ensured that this "no man's land", between the light classics and what is often termed "popular" music, continues to thrive in the new millennium.
