The songs of Noël Coward

Songs of Noel Coward by Dominic Alldis

The playwright, songwriter and actor Noël Coward personified English elegance and wit.  He first achieved fame starring in his own play The Vortex in 1924 and went on to write many successful plays, including Hay Fever (1925), Private Lives (1930), Cavalcade (1931) as well as the classic film Brief Encounter (1945), as well as a string of wonderful songs.

In The songs of Noel Coward, Dominic recounts anecdotes from Coward’s remarkable life and performs many of his most endearing songs:

A Room With A View
Come The Wild, Wild Weather
I’ll Follow My Secret Heart
I’ll See You Again
London Pride
Mad Dogs And Englishmen
Mrs Worthington
Poor Uncle Harry
Sail Away
Sigh No More
The Party’s Over Now
The Stately Homes Of England
Why Do The Wrong People Travel
World Weary
You Were There

Dominic displays impeccable diction and great sensitivity in his playing. His album If Love Were All has never been far from my own CD player in recent weeks, providing fresh nuances with each repeated playing...

The Broadway musicals of Cole Porter – from “Kiss Me Kate” and “Anything Goes” to “Silk Stockings” and “Can Can” – set the standards of style and wit to which today’s composers and lyricists aspire.
