Music Appreciation Group

It was considered in 2011 that, perhaps, the excellent sound equipment in Church could be used to bring a wide selection of music,  to all-comers  having their choices to share on the third Friday of the month. All genres of music encouraged – easy listening, classical, country and western, hymns, baroque, etc., together with composers and artists based on letters of the “alphabet trail”. 


Returning for the Music Appreciation Group’s summer season, “R” was the theme for the evening’s programme – as follows:-

“Overture- Les Indes Galantes” by Rameau, “Lara’s Theme (from the film Dr. Zhivago) – The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, “Rabbits” – Chas n Dave, “Bolero” – L’Orchestra de la Suisse Romande, “You’ve lost that loving feeling” – The Righteous Brothers, A re-mastered version of “In dreams” – Roy Orbison with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, “The Cuckoo” from The Birds” – Ottorino Respighi, “Rocket Man” – Elton John, “Ballard of Easy Rider” – The Byrds, “Nella Fantasia” – Russell Watson, “Entree des Quatres Nations” – Rameau, “El Paso” – Marty Robbins, “Robert de Niro’s waiting” – Bananarama, “China Roses” – Enya, “Red Sails in the sunset” – Colm Wilkinson, “Air pour les enclaves africains – Air vif” – Rameau , “Unchained Melody” – The Righteous Brothers, “Song for Guy” – Elton John, “Rhythm of the rain” – The Cascades.

With thanks to DJ Marian and the “Refreshment and Chair management team”.

Moving along the alphabet trail brings us to “S” for the next meeting – appropriately on “Suffolk Day” – Friday, 21st June at 7.30.p.m. in Pakefield Church – a perfect excuse for an “Ed Sheerhan – Suffolk boy” choice. Time to look out “S” themed music from all genres, artists and composers. New and existing members most welcome to come along with their choices or simply to listen in this beautiful, peaceful venue with the usual £2. donation.
