Song: Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square, A

Written by Eric Maschwitz, Manning Sherwin

A highlight of the London musical "New Faces," the poignant romantic ballad A NIGHTINGALE SANG IN BERKELEY SQUARE was introduced in the United States in 1940. The song became an immediate success for four recording artists who scored Top 20 hits with it in 1940 and 1941: British bandleader Ray Noble, "Swing and Sway" conductor Sammy Kaye, Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians and Glenn Miller (whose version rose to No. 2). Manhattan Transfer released a standout a cappela treatment of this classic in 1981.
