During the war McKenna served in France, and shortly after the Armistice he entered the Royal College of Music, where he studied for four years. He then went for two years to Italy.
At Leipzig he was engaged by Professor Straube, the Cantor of the Ihomas-Kirche, to sing at the Bach festival in 1931. He returned to England in 1933 and since that time he has given numerous broadcast recitals.

Prelude, The Mastersingers
The Prelude to The Mastersingers is made up entirely of material subsequently used in the opera, and the chief themes are easily distinguishable. It opens with the bold melody associated with the Mastersingers themselves, followed by music in march rhythm which is intended to portray the Guild of Mastersingers. Presently is heard the theme later associated with Walther and Eva, and here the melody of the Prize Song is announced for the first time. After that comes the theme of the Apprentices, and the Prelude concludes with a superb and exhilarating passage in which three of the themes already heard are combined with great contrapuntal ingenuity.

Tristan, seriously wounded by Melot for his treachery to King Mark, has been put on a ship by Kurvenal and brought to Brittany. There he lies overcome with pain and despair, hoping against hope for Isolde to come to him. The Prelude to Act 3 which opens on this scene is full of the melancholy that obsesses the mind of Tristan. A shepherd has been set to watch the arrival of a ship, and as he gazes out to sea he plays on his pipe a poignant melody. On this the curtain rises.
In Snowbound Hall (The Master-Now begin! 5 singers)
Perhaps one of the most stirring pieces of tone painting in the whole of The Ring is the great Funeral March of Siegfried, which is heard in the Third Act of The Twilight of the Gods. Siegfried has been slain by Hagen, and Gunther and his men bear the body on their shields in the silence of the hills.
This solemn and deeply expressive march suggests a kaleidoscopic view of Siegfried's life from the beginning to the end. With supreme musical skill and imagination Wagner introduces and welds together various significant motives connected with Siegfried in The Ring. We hear ' Siegfried's death blow ', ' Sigmund the Walsung ', ' The Recognition of Sigmund and Sieglinde 'The Sword Nothung’, ‘ Siegfried the fearless ', ' Siegfried the warrior', ' Briinnhilde ', etc.
