command performance 1912

036
The programme of the Command Performance at the Palace (Buckingham) July 1st 1912. The performances taken from recordings on the internet evoke the atmosphere and feelings that were around just prior to the 1st World War when Music Hall was at its height.
You can look at the names on the programme search for more of these performances from that bygone age. Compare with the Jubilee Concert last year to see how much things have changed in the last 100 years.
