"River Folk - Songs of the Organ"

I'm usually not a fan of musical films, but this is expertly done. Before you watch, read the description from BFI Films: "Legendary musician Reginald Foort bashes out some crowdpleasers on the Compton organ at the Ambassador Cinema in Hounslow. In this edition, all the tunes are river-related: after two songs set around the Thames, courtesy of Harry Compton and the Eton College Choral Society, we travel to Eastern Europe - or at least, an unconvincing set designed to look like Eastern Europe, where ersatz Russian peasants treat us to a rousing chorus of Ya Vass Lublu."
