PROGRAMME
SIXPENCE
LONGWOOD SING
TIS September once again at Nab End Tower.
(Unbroken now for four score years and four)—
As we congregate, in person or in spirit,
To Sing — To help our Charities once more.
We’ll hear again the Choruses of Handel,
The Conductor s baton like a mystic rod
Gives the lead in Harmony, as, soaring Heavenwards
Is heard the beauty of the people praising God.
Come one, come all, dear friends, you’re doubly welcome To join our happy throng—whatever creed—
To Sing, and meet old friends—and show we’re thankfull That we’re able to assist the ones in need.
L. CROWTHER
The Officers and Committee wish to thank all those good people who worked and gave to make our Sing a success in 1956, and earnestly solicit your undiminished support again this year.
