    When I was at primary/Junior school in the early 1950s we had assembly every morning, with hymns and prayers led nationally by the BBC schools service which used every morning, the music: Sheep May Safely Graze by JS Bach as its introduction allowing time to get into assembly before beginning.

    I still sing some of these hymns today and remember them with great affection,

    At secondary school (1973-78) we had an assembly every morning for the whole school that lasted about 15-20 minutes. The headmaster would often lead the assembly with hymns, prayers, notices and short speeches. The teachers would stand around the hall keeping an eye on their classes. The only pupil who didn't attend assembly in my class was a girl who was a Jehovah's Witness or something similar. Popular hymns were:

    O Jesus I have Promised to a quite jaunty tune

    Lord of the Dance

    Fight the Good Fight

    Onward, Christian Soldiers

    Immortal, Invisible

    All Things Bright and Beautiful
