It's got to be the 1880s. Sir Alexander Mackenzie premiered his cantata The Bride to huge acclaim at the Three Choirs Festival of 1881. Edward Elgar played in the violins at the première and later remarked that meeting Mackenzie was "the event of my musical life".Forget MacCunn - Mackenzie's your man.
'arry lauder may have something to say about that......surely the 1920's opened up access to the masses.cheers frae the dale
Harry or Alex There's only one way to settle it - FIGHT!
Sir Alex conducted more orchestras than you can shake a stick at...
My Greatuncle Alex MacKenzie was killed @ Ypres in June 1915 .. I've got his button stick.

Just listening tae The Original Soundtrack by 10CC, I'd forgotten how good it is. Good idea for the jotterBig boys don't cry.......
We do occasionally DC ,, fell approx. 25 feet last Saturday on a climb, ice gave way.RE knackered the knackered right knee in the process, I see 50 this Spring.Am I getting too old for that kind of stuff?All is not lost, "The Original Soundtrack" take me straight back to carefree days .. a classic.
Sorry to hear that MM. My knees are such that I gave up climbing hills a few years back. I even get a few aches after a few hours sailing these days!I have transferred a fair bit of my record collection to my iPad via iCloud and am enjoying looking for music by checking the album covers, kinda like in the old days, thumbing through the LPs. Original Soundtrack was a result of this last night
A Doctor replies:"The problems which come with advancing years can bring with a yearning for younger, carefree days before feelings of immortality and limitless possibility gave way to the realities of infirmity and failure. The attempt to escape from the painful misery of reality into former pursuits (such a listening to the music of the time) is perfectly normal and should not be discouraged unless it results in total withdrawal when professional help should be sought."
growing old is better than the alternative
Naebody else enjoying browsing old album covers?Endless Wire by Gordon Lightfoot on just now. I haven't played that in years
He wrote some great songs. Peter, Paul & Mary's Early Morning Rain is one of my favourites. You can't jump a jet plane like you can a freight train. Words to live by.
I recall the sense of disappointment when buying an LP & the sales person gave you the creased cover that had been on display!
There are downsides to my new browsing technique: Petula Clark's picture on her album unfortunately does not match today's realityAch weel
"If You Could Read My Mind" is one of a very few records I never tire of hearing.Absolutely perfect.I bought the album,but nothing else came close - although I actively dislike morose gritty reality folky stuff (Ewan MacColl singing about Herring Fishing etc) I also like The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald, but don't understand why.
Lee of Christian Island also, but perhaps more of a song for a sailor.....
I can't recall Gordon Lightfoot ever having made a playlist but I could be wrong. Not sure if Bryan is a fan. I've a colleague at work whose sole objective for the past two / three years is Lightfoot shouts where appropriate & on trend .. JG has never had a play hence the theory.
Sundown was played on Wednesday 7 May 2008. It was requested by Craig from Bo'ness.
Wuznae exactly yesterday. Whit happened to Craig?
He married Senga, they settled down in Broxburn. He found out she was a man and they separated. They're arguing about custody of the Brad Paisley albums.
The albums are the least of his worries, wasn't he recently made redundant from Halls?
I hear that there are suspicions about how the Jumbo Sausage got its name. Looks like the DNA testing will go on for a few weeks yet
I thought I heard someone order rhubarb and tusker the other night.
bit of respect please and no sweary words . the cardinal has resigned.cheers frae the dale
