Thread Name: Songbooks: Singing Together books on Web Site
Subject: RE: Songbooks: Singing Together books on Web Site
There's a BBC Radio 4 programme on Singing Together that's still available here (click). The programme says that Singing Together was broadcast for 50 years, but only three recorded programmes have been found.

And note that Jon Freeman has posted a fairly complete index of the Singing Together songs from folkinfo here (click)

Anybody know how to access the stuff that Kernow John had posted?

I've seen scans of a number of Singing Together booklets, and they're a delight to behold. It would be a wonderful thing for BBC to make them forever available.

In the 1950s and 1960s, US publishers Follett, Ginn, and Silver Burdett published school songbooks that were of similar style and quality. You'll find the contents of these wonderful books in our Songbook Indexing Project. If you'd like to see one of the songs in our index, just post a request in the pertinent index thread.
