In Party Mood was first composed in 1944 for the West End Celebrity Orchestra. However, it quickly became known as the theme tune to the long running Housewives’ Choice, broadcast daily on the BBC Light Programme from 1946 to 1967. It has been arranged here for solo Piano, and is sure to bring back fond memories of anyone who lived through the era!
