'Silver Jubilee'

At the end of Act II Scene 1 of "Half-way up the Mountain", the entire cast sing the 'Silver Jubilee' number. This is also known as 'Land of Hope and Glory in 1935'.

  "Half-way up the Mountain" or "The Five Talismen" is a Musical Story of a quest in the Silver Jubilee Year of 1935 by Peter Cork.

It was performed by the pupils and staff of Clapham County School in July 1976.

The discovery of a concert programme and a reel-to-reel monophonic tape recording of 'A Concert of Music by Peter Cork', given at Walsingham School on Friday, 15th July 1977 at 7:30pm, provides us with an opportunity to listen to Peter Cork introducing 'Silver Jubilee'.

In this concert performance the soloists are accompanied by the Walsingham School Choir and Orchestra conducted by Peter Cork.
