Here, recorded for the first time, is music from seven of the thirty-four films scored by British composer Doreen Carwithen (1922-2003) between 1947 and 1954. Carwithenís concert overture ODTAA (One Damn Thing After Another) had established her as a force to be reckoned with in 1946 when it was premiered by the LPO under Sir Adrian Boult. In 1947, she was the only female composer chosen from the RAM to be apprentice to the newly instituted J Arthur Rank Apprenticeship Scheme, which taught the art of film music. Carwithen went on to become Muir Mathiesonís assistant for two years, and had the guiding hand of renowned film composer William Alwyn (1905-1985), whom she later married.
