Soul Music Largo
« on: August 30, 2012, 10:37:19 AM »
Episode 1 of 5, Series 14 - Does anyone know who sings the Largo on this program sang at the Japanese POW camp? I could not find it on the info on the program at the website. Maybe it was just recorded for the show. If not I'd like to get a copy of it in  full.

Hi, I'm advised that that version came from the CD of the film Paradise Road sung by the Malle Babbe Women's Choir. It's on a Sony Clasical label. 

Hope that helps.

Perfect - thanks - your information has also led me to the fact that a film was made based on what happened at the POW camp.
In fact the CD you pointed me to is the soundtrack of the film.
I'll check them both out.
Many Thanks

You are very welcome, music is a wonder of humanity  draw the line at Cheryl Cole though, that's a given) and it's a pleasure to put someone in touch with something that they've enjoyed.
