From the record sleeve:
Ah, those days of innocence and the good life before the Great War!
The songs that lingered on from the end of Queen Victoria's reign and the new en vogue ditties of the Edwardian period.
These were the tunes that were sung Upstairs in the plush drawing room s. Downstairs, there was no padded opulence or potted palms; byt none the less, these same songs lightened the chores of the day.
Most of them are still familiar now, and all are old favourites except the new and haunting theme from the London Weekend Television series — Upstairs, Downstairs.
Including Lobe's Old Sweet Song, The Sun whose rays are All Ablaze, 'Tis the Last Rose of Summer, and Come Into the Garden, Maud.
Performed by David Bowman (baritone), Madge Stepgens (soprano), Roger Clegg (piano)
Musical arrangements by Barbara Moore
