  Music hall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
British music hall was similar to American vaudeville, featuring rousing songs and comic acts, while in the United Kingdom the term vaudeville referred to more lowbrow entertainment that would have been termed burlesque in the United States.
Music halls were originally bar rooms which provided entertainment, in the form of music and speciality acts, for their patrons.
Typically a music hall song consists of a series of verses sung by the performer alone, and a repeated chorus which carries the principal melody, and in which the audience is encouraged to join.

His musical output, as we shall see, looked in several directions, but he certainly falls within our chosen field of light music, not least because his best remembered work, the Cornish Rhapsody, for piano and orchestra written for the film Love Story, was so popular with light orchestras for so long.
His published instrumental music comprises short pieces such as the Elegiac Poem of 1922 for string quartet, a Mood Phantasy for violin and piano, a Legend in D Minor for trombone and piano and a Serenata in G Minor for B flat baritone and piano, the latter two also from 1922.
His choral music is similarly varied, including the Hymn of Apollo and Ode on a Grecian Urn, both with orchestra, unison songs for children, The Dream Maker, for female voices, sometimes used as a test piece, and the cowboy song Home on the Range, for four-part male voice choir.

He was a predecessor of other comedians and groups (like the Goons) who turned to music to further their popularity; remarkably (or perhaps not so), he was one of several singers to reach the charts ahead of established balladeers like Dickie Valentine of the early fifties.
In British pop he was something of an anomaly, since trumpeters were not big in pop music at all.
He adapted his band to the fads of the moment (the "cha cha" craze and even the British Beat bands not being sacrosanct) and was rumored to be among the favorite bands of the British royal family.
