Samples: Henry Mancini: Softly, As I Leave You (De Vita / Calabrese / Shaper, 1960)
Henry Mancini and His Orchestra perform “Softly, As I Leave You.” I recorded this track from the double LP, “This Is Henry Mancini,” RCA (VPS-6029). “Softly, as I Leave You” was composed by Antonio De Vita (1932–1998), with original Italian lyrics by Giorgio Calabrese. It was originally an Italian success in 1960 at the Sanremo Music Festival, entitled “Piano” (“Softly”). The English songwriter Hal Shaper in November 1961 wrote English lyrics to the melody, calling it “Softly, as I Leave You”.
