Song and War (Music Thoughts: As Time Goes By, Sarah Spiegel)

I love the concept of ‘As Time Goes By,’ a na album of standards by Sarah Spiegel. I know nothing of MS. Spiegel, and looking at her resume on her website, it seems that she has done a lot of acting work. This album is a collection of songs from World War II, and she has a nice clear voice that gives great impression of longing and hope. (Apparently she does a one woman show with the same theme, titled ‘Through The Perilous Fight’) The songs have mostly big-band arrangements, and authentically recreates the sound of the time. It’s a great listen.
