I learned "Goodnight Sweetheart" quite by accident as a temporary bass member of Chor Courage Berne
whose project was to sing The Coronation Mass
KV 317 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
in 2002. Now this choir alternates its repertoire between classical works and popular music on an annual basis so for relaxation, they would often sing such songs. With this song, my various musical world all came together. I enjoyed it so much that I worked out a recorder arrangement for The Bremen Recorder Touring Company
. This culminated in a mass performance by both groups at Ceilidh 2003
to the delight of all.
