Our recording of The Geisha, issued in January 1999 (CDA67006), produced an enormous approving postbag from which we discovered that there is still a strong affection for English musical comedies from the early years of the last century. Encouraged by its success we have now recorded The Maid of the Mountains, the smash hit of 1917. A more romantic tale than The Geisha, it has probably even more 'hit' numbers, the most famous of which are A bachelor gay ('At seventeen he falls in love quite madly...'), Love will find a way ('Whate'er befall, I still recall that sunlit mountainside, where hearts are true, and skies are blue, and love's the only guide'), Husbands and wives and A paradise for two. There are also humorous interludes from Richard Suart (I understood and Dirty work). Altogether well over an hour's worth of tuneful and good-natured entertainment with a strong cast directed by the master of English light music, Ronald Corp.


'Sheer delight from beginning to end' (Music & Vision)

'A delight from first to last' (Music Week)

'A quite outstandingly successful re-creation of the work ... it is a hugely important contribution to preserving our British musical theatre heritage' (Gramophone)

'Corp has brought a sense of a spontaneous stage performance, with an ideal interaction between the characters. For Anglophiles, and particularly those who enjoy G & S operettas, this disc is an absolute necessity you cannot afford to miss' (Fanfare, USA)
