  • The Sound of Music from Earlham Grove - a look at the history of the remarkable Tonic Sol-Fa school of music in Earlham Grove, which in the late nineteenth century accommodated hundreds of students being inducted into a music education via the system we know for its "Do-Ra-Me-Fa-So-La-Te-Do" scale, much famed in the Sound of Music film. The system was pioneered by John Curwen and his successors. Much of the old building, and subsequently constructed Earlham Hall, in front of it, still stands as an apostolic church today.
