The Starlight Express Suite, Op. 78. Baritone Vocals – John LawrensonSoprano Vocals – Cynthia Glover. Conductor – George HurstOrchestra – Bournemouth Sinfonietta. 9. The King And Sir Bedivere.
Exclusively for Prime members. The "King Arthur Suite" is derived from incidental music written for Lawrence Binyon's play first performed in 1923 and originally written for only 13 instruments. In this vivid Chandos stereo recording, Cynthia Glover has just a right kind of vibrant soprano voice with youthful quality for her role as a fairy, and John Lawrenson (baritone) gives warm and wonderfully imaginative performance of the songs of Organ-grinder. Bournemouth SO, George Hurt provides deeply sympathetic and expressive background.

The Starlight Express is a children's play by Violet Pearn, based on the imaginative novel A Prisoner in Fairyland by Algernon Blackwood, with songs and incidental music written by the English composer Sir Edward Elgar in 1915. On 9 November 1915 Sir Edward Elgar was invited by Robin Legge, music critic of The Daily Telegraph, to write the music for a children's fantasy play to be produced at the Kingsway Theatre that Christmas.
