Music Appreciation Group

The Music Appreciation Group meet once a month in church where a varied selection of music is listened to and mutually enjoyed.  We begin at 7:30pm on the third Friday of each month and there is a donation of £2 each month.


With evenings drawing in, the Music Appreciation Group was treated to a wide selection of “J” themed music to hear – commencing on a classical note with

“Jesu, joy of man’s desiring” – The Seaford College Chapel Choir, followed by “Joseph’s Coat” – Joe McEldery from Joseph and his Amazing Technicoloured Dream Coat (recently enjoyed “live” in Lowestoft’s Marina), “Jesus Christ the apple tree” – Aled Jones, “Jolene” – Dolly Parton recorded live to an enthusiastic Glastonbury Festival crowd, “Just a closer walk with Thee” – Patsy Cline and Willie Nelson, “Running Bear” – Johnny Preston, “What’s become of the broken-hearted” – Jimmy Ruffin, “Help me make it through the night” – John Holt, “Matthew” – John Denver, “Ghosts” – Japan, featuring David Sylvian (submitted by Virginia), “Jerusalem” – Choir of Winchester Cathedral, “Just blew in from the windy city” – Doris Day from the film “Calamity Jane”, “Just pretend” – Elvis (and for Sandra), “Just my imagination” – The Temptations, “I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls” – Dame Joan Sutherland, “Any dream will do” – Jason Donovan – another song from Joseph and his Amazing Technicoloured Dream Coat, “Journey of the angels” – Enya, “Jupiter” from Holst’s Planet Suite – The Halle Orchestra and closing with a song from Josh Grogan.

Thanks to Marian, our DJ, and to the ladies helping with refreshments and “chair arrangements.”

“K” will feature as the theme for the group’s next meeting at 7.30.p.m. on Friday, 17th November in Pakefield Church. However this is an “eventful month” as Armistice Day will be commemorated with a “Remembrance and Parade Service” at 10.30a.m. as well as a “A Service of Memories” (formerly The Bereavement Service) at 4.00.p.m. on Sunday, 12th November in our clifftop church. Welcome existing and new members might like to reflect these events in their choice of music to fit these special occasions. The usual £2. donation will apply.

“This month will also see the very special “Platinum” (70th) Wedding Anniversary of Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip on 20th November.”
