1946 and 1947 seemed to have been taken up by many concerts presented by Harold Fielding. One of the highlights of 1947 was singing in the broadcast to celebrate the eightieth birthday of Queen Mary. Apparently, Anne and Webster were favourites and she had asked that they should be included in the concert.

Webster was taken ill with ‘flu at the Usher Hall concert. He appeared in the first half and was unable to continue singing after the interval, so Anne finished this concert on her own and played a number of subsequent venues without him.
When he arrived in Edinburgh yesterday he was feeling unwell, and the medical advice he received was to return to London. He endeavoured, however, to play his part in Edinburgh last night, but it was necessary for Miss Ziegler to take the second appearance on her own.
Mr Booth last night expressed to the Courier and Advertiser his extreme disappointment at being unable to come to Dundee. He was returning to London this morning.
9 February 1946 – Glasgow Herald. Celebrity Concert in Glasgow – Webster Booth Ill. by Our Music Critic.
Celebrity concerts in most cases are in a class by themselves, proclaiming beforehand the visiting artists only and making no mention of the music they will play or sing. This emphasising of the personal side must have made all the more disappointing the absence last evening in St Andrew’s Hall, Glasgow, of Webster Booth through illness. His partner, Anne Ziegler, carried on bravely without him, and a crowded audience gave her the usual warm reception, expressing this time sympathy as well as pleasure.
Her repertoire is familiar to her host of admirers, who attend to hear their favourites. But the supporting artists might have had some publicity beforehand for their chosen numbers. Vina Barnden, a pianist new to Glasgow, played Chopin, Liszt, and a more modern group. She has nimble fingers, a light touch that did not on the whole give sufficient depth of tone to her interpretations, and a rather restless idea of rubato.
