Emmie Octavia Hill event (23) Octavia Hill event 31 Aug 13

Hi Mudcatters, time to pick your brains again. I'm singing at an event to commemorate Octavia Hill, one of the founder members of the national Trust. The event is the flower day at red cross gardens and is a community event where local people bring produce they have grown. There will be lots of victorian themed events. Redcross gardens was originally a community garden that she opened for local Londoners working in a paper factory to experience contact with nature and arts as there were beautiful grounds and a bandstand for workers to hear music.

I was wondering if people had any suggestions for songs I could sing that would suit the era : i.e. late 18oo's/early 1900's, the beauty of nature, philanthropy etc. I'm not so great at singing music hall so I would prefer something more traditionally folkie.

I'm going to look through the data base as well. Many thanks. You are always so helpful on here!
