Welcome to the Robert Farnon / Journal into Melody / Legends of Light Music pages

This website is dedicated to the wonderful music of Robert Farnon 1917-2005.

The Robert Farnon Society issued its last printed edition of "Journal Into Melody" in December 2013. Its activities are now solely centred around this revamped website. Were you a contributor to Journey Into Melody?  If so we would welcome news, articles and features from you -- they will be published here. We also welcome potential new contributors who have something to say about the world of light music. Read our new articles here.
  Feel free to contact us if you have news or an article to contribute. Regrettably, no other correspondence can be entered into.
Please use our Facebook page for questions or requests.
