Tunes of the times
Wynford Reynolds was born in Ebbw Vale, Monmouthshire, studied music as a child, and always wanted to play the violin. It was not until after the last war that he took up music seriously. He won a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music, and studied there for six years.
In 1922 he joined the original
Queen's Hall Orchestra, and in 1929 he formed the Wynford Reynolds Octet with which he began broadcasting in 1934. His signature tune, ' A Cocktail of Happiness ', has sold over five thousand copies. He also frequently broadcasts with other combinations.

Completed in 1918 and published in 1922, 'A Song before Sunrise' is inscribed by the composer ' For Philip Heseltine who is better known to listeners under the name he adopted as a composer. Peter Warlock.
Scored for a small orchestra of woodwind, two horns, and strings, it begins with a fresh, happy melody given chiefly to the strings, with little snatches of tune on the woodwind breaking in on it. Throughout the music is eloquent of its title in Delius's picturesque way.
