This exclusive new recording turns the spotlight on a forgotten but fascinating corner of British music and theatre history. The Fringes of the Fleet, a patriotic song-cycle with words by Kipling, was the morale-raising headline act in variety theatres throughout the country, as World War I reached its climax in 1917. This recording is a significant document in understanding a forgotten era of British music.
“The admirable Roderick Williams is entrusted with the lion's share of duties and he is ably abetted by his three vocal colleagues; the Guildford PO, too, is on its toes under Tom Higgins's watchful lead.”
