SONGS PUBLISHED IN VOLUMES

1:  Album of Eight Songs - AES

I'll See You Again (Bitter Sweet, 1929)
A Room With a View (This Year of Grace, 1928)
Someday I'll Find You (Private Lives, 1930)
Lover of My Dreams (Cavalcade, 1931)
Zigeuner (Bitter Sweet, 1929)
20th Century Blues (Cavalcade, 1931)
Half-Caste Woman (Cochran's 1931 Revue)
Dance, Little Lady (This Year of Grace, 1928)

(The exact date of publication of this volume has proved difficult to determine; however, various editions of the volume advertised other Noël Coward music publications on the rear cover.  One edition listed the Henry Hall piano arrangement of  Noël Coward Melodies (published 1932) and a subsequent edition listed both Henry Hall, and also George Zalva's piano arrangement of Noël Coward Successes (published 1937). 
So it seems likely that the volume was first issued between 1933-35, and the cover reprinted when it continued to sell into 1937 and beyond.  Its success probably led to the publication of CPA's 1 & 2 which follow.)


2a:  A Noël Coward Concert Party Album (publ. Nov. 1938) - CPA1

He Never Did That to Me (1924 Misc.)
It Doesn't Matter How Old You Are (This Year of Grace!, 1928)

She Was a Good Girl Then (1926 Misc.)
The Touch of a Woman's Hand (1925 Misc.)
We Must All Be Very Kind To Auntie Jessie (1925 Misc.)

(Obviously seen as an opportunity to publish some neglected numbers)


2b:  A Noël Coward Concert Party Album (publ. April 1939) - CPA2

Stately Homes of England (Operette, 1938)
Little Women (This Year of Grace!, 1928)
Regency Rakes (Conversation Piece, 1934)
Bright Young People (Cochran's 1931 Revue)
Back to Nature (The Co-Optimists, 1928?)

(Interesting to note, also, that each of these volumes contained one genuine "hit".  Shrewd commercialism!)


3:  The Noël Coward Song Book (Michael Joseph, 1953) - NCSB

Illustrations by Gladys Calthrop; (Musical assistant/Editor: Norman Hackforth);

Second Edition 1977
Reprinted as The Essential Noël Coward Song Book by Omnibus Press, 1980
Reprinted 1984 by Methuen (part of a major reprinting of the Coward plays, verses, lyrics and music undertaken by Methuen at that time, and all in a matching red paperback format)

(Selective, some duff numbers, extra bits and verses cut out [e.g. only one verse of lyrics for 'Marvellous Party'], and of course no work written after 1951.  Useful introductions by NC, including the classic story of the origin of 'London Pride'.  There are some weak accompaniments (e.g. 'Dance Little Lady' now seeming rather wooden); but also some notable improvements to selected songs' harmonic underlay.  The five songs showing significant "improvements" are marked with * below.  Also an opportunity to get into print some strong numbers from previous shows which had not for one reason or another been issued as sheet music at the time, e.g. 'That Is the End of the News' from Sigh No More, 'His Excellency Regrets' from Pacific 1860, among others.)

11. Noel Coward Rediscovered – NCR

Warner Bros. Publications, Miami FL, 2001

A wide-ranging collection of 48 songs arranged alphabetically; but also a laziness on the part of the publishers, as all songs are unedited reprints, and some are trotted out yet again with all their existing little annoyances and inadequacies.  No imagination and not much style was used in the exercise of this production.
