Ivor Novello (born David Ivor Davies) was a Welsh composer, singer and actor who became one of the most popular British entertainers of the early 20th century. He first became well known through the song Keep the Home Fires Burning which he composed during World War I. After the war, he began a film career, and also appeared on stage in the West End, in musical shows of his own devising, most notably The Dancing Years. Novello starred in two early Hitchcock films before heading to Hollywood and appeared in some successful films. He died in 1951, at a fairly young age of 58.

Thanks to "Gosford Park" many people became aware of Ivor Novello who produced some of the loveliest songs in the early 20th century. He, like his contemporary, Noel Coward, wrote many musical comedies and also appeared in Hollywood films. His waltzes are romantic and haunting yet uplifting. Intelligent, lovely music with excellent piano arrangements. I'm enjoying it immensely.
Lovely songs to play and sing. I wish I could play the piano better (also long for longer fingers to play all the notes).
