Ronald Binge(1910-1979) was a gifted composer, arranger, theater organist and accordionist who flourished in the post-World War II British recording industry. This was a time when the public thirsted for a more sophisticated type of entertainment, and the public found the light orchestra style particularly appealing. Binge composed several enduring classics, but his biggest successes were with the famous Mantovani Orchestra, where he was the favorite arranger for many years. He is credited with the innovation of the cascading strings technique where the violin parts overlap, sustain, and decay in such a way as to simulate the reverberations heard in an enormous cathedral. His haunting arrangement of Charmaine launched Mantovani to international stardom in 1951.
