About

What is ‘Production Music’? In simple terms it is music provided by publishers for use by professionals mainly in the entertainment business. Most of it is specially composed for the purpose, and some pieces may last only a few seconds.

But there are many examples of light music cameos which have become popular with the public through their familiarity as signature tunes and in similar situations where they have been regularly heard.

By the end of the 1940s, the production music scene (in those days more commonly called ‘mood music’) was well established in Britain, and this collection contains examples by many of the finest composers working in this little-known corner of the music business.
