  • Short Summary

    Iwan sings for us - alas the soundtrack is no more.

  • Description

    Visuals only - soundtrack decomposed and junked 9/11/1999.

    Introductory intertitle reads: "A few weeks ago, Iwan, a London Choir School pupil, and a chorister in All Souls Church, London, was almost unknown." Second intertitle reads: "Then came a request for him to appear before their Majesties at Buckingham Palace, and the little Welsh Minstrel Boy became famous overnight. Today he sings for us "Charming Cloe" (Edward German)."

    M/S of Iwan singing as he leans against the piano. Pastoral shots of the British countryside are intercut with shots of his performance. A woman walks through a field of corn, then through a country garden. Shots of a bridge over a stream covered with hanging plants.
