Musical Appreciation

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.

October's Music was any music with a place, Town, City or region in the title..

Elgar: Overture Cockaigne (in London Town)
Howells: Gloucester Service - Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis

Also we have Cakes! One of the members, Sylvia, bakes fresh cakes on the theme of the afternoon. What's not to like!

The cakes were Bakewell Tart and Vienna Whirls
