School Songs Medley

First line:
The Wickets are set, the field is met
‘Tis Merry England Still by Edward Thring & Christian Reimers; Willow the King by E E Bowen & John Farmer; On Surrey Hills by J M Bastard & Orton Bradley; Hail to the Name of the Brave old Game by R St J Ainslie & P A Thomas; Cricket is King by Ainger

For some there will be memories of mucky white flannels and sweaty jock-straps on the playing fields of some of England’s prestigious academic institutions. Much moral fibre, unashamed allegiance and exaltation in evidence as provided by a plethora of music masters and associates: Uppingham, Harrow, Banstead, Sedburgh and Eton to the fore, don’t you know!
