This morning we’re going to celebrate the work of the great songwriters and the very talented singers and musicians from the first part of the twentieth century. We’ll be listening to some lovely recordings of some very nice songs, which is what we do every Sunday morning, and today we’ll hear those songs again, not once, but twice. We have six songs in our line up, and two recordings of each by different artists. It isn’t really a competition to see which ones are better. To be honest, I can’t choose between them, and each one is terrific in its own right. But it does give us a taste of the wonderful art of the great songwriters, and how many different ways there were to perform and sing them. And of course, how very talented the performers were.
