Webster Booth (tenor - 1902-1984) and Anne Ziegler (soprano - 1910-2003) were best known in Britain as duettists on the Variety circuit from 1940 to 1955. During that time they rose rapidly to fame and were frequently heard and seen on radio, records, television, film and stage. Besides this Variety Act, Webster Booth was one of the foremost tenors of his generation and continued to sing in numerous oratorios throughout his career on the Variety circuit. The Webster Booth-Anne Ziegler Yahoo group is for those who remember them from the days of their success in the UK and South Africa, and for others discovering them for the first time. In the group there is a discussion forum and access to rare recordings and photographs featuring them as duettists and soloists.
I posted the following message to members of the Booth-Ziegler Yahoo Group yesterday:
group has been running for over 4 years and has 37 members, although only about
6 or 7 members ever comment. I know that people are busy and haven't always got
time to join in discussions so I'm wondering whether I should close the group
and create a mailing list for those who would like to be informed
about things I post on the internet about Anne and Webster. Any
there has been even less interest in this group over the last 6 months. I
getting older and am not in the best of health, so although I had hoped
that the group would continue despite everything, I really think it is
time to call it a day. If you would like to be added to my mailing list,
please contact me off-line and I will make a note of your email address
to add to the list. In that way I should have a mailing list composed of
people who are still interested in Anne and Webster. Even if you did not belong to the group, you may send me a message with your email address if you want to be added to my mailing list.
to those who have commented and supported me in the 4 years since this
group has been running. Unless anything happens, I shall close this
group formally in a month's time.
