Perry's voice has been described by experts as 'a lovely Italian baritone with close to a two-octave range, a flawlessly even scale from top to bottom, a masterly use of half-voice and head-voice, phrasing at once fastidious and eloquent . . . and immaculate, unobtrusive enunciation.' To hear that description come to life, listen to this charming love song. Written by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt, the song was one of the delights of their 1966 Broadway musical 'I Do! I Do!', based on the play 'The Fourposter' by Jan de Hartog. The musical had only two characters — Robert Preston and Mary Martin — in a remarkable performance, which covered the life together, from honey moon to old age, of a couple in love.
