The freshly polished silver sparkles in the light of the chandelier; the fragrance of fresh flowers fills the air. Set in the year preceding the Second World War, 165 Eaton Place reopens its doors and welcomes you back into the enrapturing lives of its inhabitants, both upstairs and down. There may be two families living in 165 - one upstairs and one down - but their fates are intimately linked. With both upstairs and down harbouring life changing secrets and the menace of war creeping ever closer, the smooth running of Eaton Place threatens to come crashing to shattering halt. The Original Music from Series 2 contains a new recording of the famous original theme to the Seventies series plus all brand new incidental music composed and conducted by Carl Davis. The haunting theme for 165 Eaton Place sets the scene for this Thirties drama. Carl Davis provides music to capture the dance traditions of Rumbas and Swing of the period and a feeling of impending drama as the threat of World War looms ever closer with the disc ending on the iconic I Vow to Thee My Country sung by a Children’s Choir.
