The group meets on the first Wednesday of the month between 2.00 and 4.00 pm, at the home of the organiser, Dominic Faux. He can be contacted by e-mail
Members take it in turn to choose the music for the group to hear; we like to approach each meeting with a theme. We can also discuss approaches to the music chosen include background research, and analysis and evaluation of different interpretations.
Formats include CDs, LPs, MP3/MP4 files and Youtube links.
