Martin and Coward largely worked separately, after opening with Noël's specially written title song "Together with Music" and "Ninety Minutes is a Long, Long Time". Coward shows audiences his rapid-fire recitatives of his own comic songs like Mad Dogs and Englishmen, Uncle Harry, Nina and The party's over now, the latter a duet with Mary Martin, and a medley of some of his more sentimental material. Martin shines on a medley of songs from her stage triumph "South Pacific", and a reprise of Cole Porter's "My Heart Belongs to Daddy." Together at the end, they do a lengthy and somewhat chaotic medley of old favorites. Written by

This was the 'first' ninety minute CBS Television produced spectacular - "Together with Music" - to be broadcast in color, the second "Ford Star Jubilee" special transmitted live with and in front of an 'invited audience'. CBS had purchased a legitimate theatre property located at Broadway and 81st Street in early 1954. The theatre was designated as "CBS Studio 72". The property and stage facility underwent extensive renovation, converting the property for electronic television transmission equipment for color cameras. The music concert special featured only two performers - Noël Coward and Mary Martin with an orchestra. See more
