This Album, produced to commemorate the Bi-Centenial of the death of Lord Nelson, on board the Victory at Trafalgar, starts with a dramatised presentation of the song The Death of Nelson. This song, words by Arnold and music by John Braham was first performed in 1811.
The songs on the Album were written a time when Britain ruled the waves. Many are of a patriotic flavour, popular a hundred years ago, whilst others are in a more humourous vein. The artists range from Leo Stormont, who was a popular concert singer of the time, R Kennerley Rumford (Clara Butt's husband), to Lane Wilson who arranged and performed many traditional songs. Apart from the first track which dates from 1930, the other recordings span the years 1899 to 1914.
