Cantabile On the Tracks of...The Comedian Harmonist

Cantabile and celebrated accompanist Malcolm Martineau explore the 'English' output of this extraordinary vocal group of the 1930s. The disc also features a real rarity: the first cut of a song included in almost every Comedian Harmonists' concert, yet never recorded by them: Spolianksy's 'Auf Wiederseh'n
