Another song about Sydney was written and recorded around the same time by Maurice Chenoweth, a well known ‘silvery tenor’. He had been performing around Australia in a variety of musical styles since the turn of the century ranging from art song, vaudeville and even singing with a jazz band alongside a celebrated lady whistler. Perhaps Chenoweth had also entered The Sun’s competition and decided to publish and record his song anyway. He does describe it on the sheet music as the 'People’s Song’. It is the only composition of his in the National Library’s collection and the only recording held by the NFSA.
