As we have left the EU I thought I would add an Australian band conducted by Albert H. Baile featuring a beautifully played cornet solo by Alfred Paxton. We will need all the friends we can get!

If anyone knows if Albert Paxton was connected with the Paxton Record Label I would be most interested to be informed.

Camille Saint-Saens  “Softly Awakes My Heart” from ‘Samson and Delilah’ recorded back in 1926. This record may have been recorded acoustically.
