Various Artists
Siffleurs' Souffle (CDR76)

At one time, whistling popular tunes in the street was very common, but today it is infrequently heard. The whistlers on this CD acquired a much higher stanndard than the average street whistler. Popular from the late 1800s, professional whistlers amazed their audiences with their dexterity and range. Restored from recordings dating from 1901 to 1956, this CD includes both feats of whistling and songs about whistling.
