Quenton Ashlyn was the pseudonym of society entertainer Frank Kennedy. In his autobiography "The Mighty God and a Sinner", he described his natural talent for music and that the concert hall and theatre greatly fascinated him. Before his entertainment career he was employed in clerical duties on a Royal Commission, but he became so successful as a society entertainer that he abandoned government service. He composed humorous songs which achieved popularity and a wide circulation. He went to the Torrey-Alexander Mission at the Albert Hall, London in 1905 after which he gave up the theatre life and lived as a devout Christian.

This edition has extra 'bits' (Mozart, Dukas, Godfrey etc.) courtesy of Gareth Newman.
