There’s blue in the sky, and there’s blue in the sea,
And a blue mist is veiling the mountains from me.

[caption id="attachment_484" align="alignleft" width="150"] Clipped from 'The Sunday Times" 1927[/caption] I've been chasing down a few family lines recently - and was a little surprised to find there were more artistes in the family. Celene Hooper (born Selina Hooper Hudson) is/was my 1st cousin 3R. She married Sydney Calland (born Sydney Charles Scoble) and, in 1924, came to Australia. They performed regularly on the live theatre circuit as Calland & Hooper and, later, on radio. Syd also taught singing. Imagine my surprise and delight when this blog post turned up as a result of my Google search. In it is an audio version of the only published work by Syd and Celene I have been able to find - "The Song of the New Guard". I had already established through TROVE that the sheet music was in the hands of the National Library but to find that someone had brought it to life, was a little added bonus! Thank you, Matthew.
