A Garland Of Song contains ten pieces by Christopher Field, written expressly with the developing voice in mind, with simple vocal lines and supportive Piano accompaniments aimed to provide attractive teaching and concert material.
Christopher Field began his lifelong relationship with music in 1953, as a chorister at the coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II. Later he won a choral exhibition to Trinity College, Cambridge, a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music and an Arts Council of Great Britain award for postgraduate study with Frederick Husler in Switzerland.
He subsequently enjoyed a career as a schoolmaster at Dulwich College, a role which he combined with work as a concert Baritone, choral conducting, and teaching singing and Double Bass. For many years a number of his teaching works have been included in the graded examination syllabuses of the leading examination boards.
