Ringer 'Singing Together' - BBC Song Booklets (113* d) RE: 'Singing Together' 1958 UK 12 Oct 09


No, no, Young Buchan (your post 11 Sep 07 - 10:31 AM), the programs were not meant for different age-groups -- they had different emphases. Singing Together was just that: singing; Rhythm & Melody and Time & Tune attemped to instill the basics of musical theory (perhaps these two were aimed at different age-groups - R&M had a booklet format similar to Singing Together, that is white booklet of about A5 size, whereas T&T had a bigger, landscape format booklet with bigger writing, bigger staves, etc).

Music & Movement was desperate: I recognise the embarrassment of Compton up-screen (24 Feb 07 - 01:25 PM) who obviously went through the same painful experience as me: being a tree blown by the wind to music, or being a swan to music, etc (along with skipping to music & other similar ridiculousnesses). My embarrassment was heightened to the level of exquisite torture in summer, when we had to do it outside, and a double-decker bus was due past....

But I did enjoy Singing Together.

William Appleby, I think, Compton. I, too, remember "My Love's an Arbutus"; your post implies that you didn't know then what it was all about, Compton: are you wiser now? ('cos I'm not - does that song actually mean anything?)
