Now And Then part 06
Composer: Harrison, J. M.
Employers encouraged their workforce to sing, play musical instruments and to join orchestras or bands. The Victorians are well known for their strict moral code and they believed that the discipline of practising on their pieces every night encouraged dedication and commitment and that being part of an organisation would encourage people to work together at work as well as in their own time. Music Hall songs on the other hand were targeted by moral reformers as they represented the worst leisure activities namely, drunkenness, obscenity and sensuality.
