Robin Gregory recalls the life and career of the great English tenor Leslie Webster Booth, who died ten years ago this month. Booth's widow and former singing partner Anne Ziegler shares her memories of an artist who was equally at home in oratorio or variety. Other comments come from impresario Harold Fielding, accompanist
Gladys Midgley and presenter Brian Kay, and the programme includes examples of Booth's solo and duet recordings.
