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!
