  • Description

    No titles. Albert Sandler and Reginald King - 'Daybreak' (this version is probably from Pathetone Parade compilation).

    Over scenes of dawn breaking in countryside, commentator describes how "Poets, painters and musicians, all have described the glory of daybreak with its simple beauty heralding another day". He goes on to introduce "those master musicians" Reginald King - piano, Albert Sandler - violin, accompanied by Reginald Kilbey - cello as they play "that haunting melody, 'Daybreak'".

    Pathe Studio, London.

    The trio play in a room setting and the number is intercut with shots of countryside and coastline at dawn / dusk / night.

    Note: Reginald King was the composer of 'Daybreak'.

    This was originally item in Pathetone PT 280. Duplicate exists in 'Pathetone Parade of 1940' - check for best quality.

    Note October 2011: Kilbey was previously named in this description as "Kilby". Spelling corrected after a visitor to the site wrote in.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
