 Music from Past Performances

Over a number of years a number of our practices and performances were recorded by Peter Gatenby, one of our basses, who quite often could be found hiding in a pulpit or other inconspicuous place in church or chapel, with his tape recorder. Sadly he left us in 2011, and then died on 28th May 2012. The pieces of music below are taken from his recordings, and (sometimes individual) interpretations of our peformances, and put on to disk. The Notes are also his. On disk, these separate items follow
each other automatically to form an entity. On-line, they require individual downloading.

Enjoy them in the spirit in which Peter recorded them, and embellished them for posterity.
You will recognise the voices of several singers and players now no longer with us.
Thank you Peter! And, thank you Immanuel's Ground for the fun which we have had together!
