 Music and Pictures from Past Performances

Link to music for use on ZOOM:

      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 Peter's recordings, and h+is (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!

Carol Concert at All Saints' Church, Cheltenham - 5th December 2009
"This church was built so as not to have to listen to this sort of music" - [quote from the concert!]

These two files are unedited and record (one or warts and all!) the two parts of the evening.  Some of the links and speeches are a little faint as the speakers were not necessarily near to the recording mikes. The Rector/Vicar was Rev'd Gant, and our host for the evening was Cameron Luke, a former Doctoral scholar at the Faculty of Music at the University of Oxford and a friend of Sheila Macadam. He also was the organist and choirmaster at All Saints. 
There are no spaces between the carols and joining links.
