Today’s Top 5

Sign of the Times

Today you'd have a dozen people on guitars.

Not an electric guitar in sight

Flugelhorn, 4 trumpets, 3 baritone horns, flute, saxophone (a woman! scandalous for the 40s!) two snare drums and a bass drum.

Correction - cornet, not flugelhorn.

Song

Rock of ages?

Sheet Music

Can you work out what the song is on the sheet music?

[I can't. But maybe someone who reads music can tell what it is. - Dave]
