Audio CD


Product Description
'Cowards in the Wings' is an important addition to the discography of Noel Coward, rediscovering several previously unrecorded songs, including those in ‘The Hall of Fame’ sequence from Coward’s 1932 revue Words and Music, and the musical numbers from his 1960 play Waiting in the Wings. Also featured are rarely heard items from Coward’s scores for the Broadway The Girl Who Came to Supper and Sail Away, and songs from two musicals based on plays by Coward: the 1964 'High Spirits' and the 1968 British musical 'Mr. and Mrs.'

As well as enchanting piano selections featuring some of Coward’s best known melodies, the other offerings include Coward’s first published song ‘The Baseball Rag’, and an alternative version of ‘Mad About the Boy’. Helen McDermott, Adrian Wright and Annette Jude breathe new life into these works, in a show that has been broadcast by the BBC, toured successfully and played such disparate venues as the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, village halls, and Carnforth Railway Station.

With: Helen McDermott, Adrian Wright, Annette Jude (piano), John Knowles
