St. Nicolas Church Choir - Recordings
Updated  Wednesday, 11 December 2002

I have re-kindled my interest in audio recordings - I had my first reel-to-reel tape recorder in the mid-1960. One of my on-going projects is to transfer these, recordings made on cassette tape and other recordings to Compact Disc. Below are listed some of them. These are very much "home-made" and live recordings, often of church services, and produced on what is essential domestic recording as opposed to studio equipment. Nevertheless the quality is not that bad. The important thing is that they provide a resource for anyone wanting to know more about Newbury and the activity and involvement of one of its citizens.

A small charge is made to cover costs, eg. blank CD-Rs, printing, etc. - any surplus goes to choir funds.
