"Duet", the autobiography of famous British duettists, Webster Booth and Anne Ziegler was first published by Stanley Paul in 1951. I have digitised the book and have published it here (without index, but with the original illustrations). I am very grateful to John Marwood for meticulously proofreading the book for me. Webster and Anne have told the exciting story of their lives and careers - a must-read for everyone who remembers them or who have just discovered them recently.

    I read this book many years ago and am delighted that it has been digitised and once again available to those who are interested in reading about the illustrious careers of tenor Webster Booth and soprano Anne Ziegler. Although the book was written by a ghost-writer, the tone of the alternate chapters written in turn by Anne and Webster captures the personalities of both writers - Webster's writing is more measured and thoughtful than Anne's enthusiastic, spontaneous writing. Webster Booth had one of the finest British tenor voices of the twentieth century and had a distinguished career in oratorio and recording in his own right. Anne Ziegler had a pleasant light soprano voice and a charming personality, but she was never in the same vocal class as her husband. This book is entitled "Duet", so the emphasis of the book is on the work the couple did together as duettists on the concert and variety stage. I thoroughly enjoyed the book but I would have liked to have heard more... More > about Webster's distinguished solo singing career. No doubt this book was responsible for giving people the idea that Webster was merely a romantic duettist in partnership with his wife, doing nothing more than singing light songs together with her. Despite this reservation, the book moves at lightning pace and is most enjoyable. I recommend it highly.< Less
