Arthur Lloyd's 'Constantinople'
Above - Arthur Lloyd's 'Constantinople'
I always knew of Arthur Lloyd. In my early working life one of his songs; "Constantinople" was used for the Song Sheet in our pantomimes. He was, of course dead before I was born, however, I worked with people that had worked with him and spoke of him as one of the all time greats.
"Constantinople" was used in the schoolroom scene in "Babes in the Wood" It was an excuse to bring children from the audience onto the stage and join in the sing-a-long, and be given the cane if they spelt it wrong; but the children loved it, and often it would be mentioned that it was Arthur Lloyd's song and three cheers for Arthur Lloyd would be called for. - Courtesy Alan Chudley.
