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.


Despite an early evening heavy rain shower, members, including a new one, turned up to show they had risen to the challenge of a “Q” themed programme – albeit with some slight tenuous connections – as will be seen –

“The Parson’s Farewell” – Playford (as danced so well at Christine and Bob’s farewell), “Queen of Hearts” – David Edmunds Rockin’, “Quiet my mind” – Pan Pipes, “Que sera, sera” – Doris Day (chosen by other members too with most joining in), “It’s a kind of magic” – live from “Queen” show, “Casanova – Queen of Hearts” – Peter Morrison and Marylin Hill Smith, “Quello che faro – sara perte” – Katherine Jenkins, “Whatever you want” – Status Quo, “San Quentin” – Johnny Cash, “Chiquitta” – Abba (“q” in the middle), “Quanto a bella” – Pavarotti, “Quando, Quando” – Engelbert Humperdink, Mozart’s “Queen of the Night – The Magic Flute” – Alison Balsom, “Questions” – The Moody Blues, “Flash” – Queen, “Que Sera” – Il Divo, “Mull of Kintyre” – Queen’s Own Highland Regimental Band”, “Dancing Queen” – Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, “Queen of Hollywood” – The Korrs, “We will rock you” – Queen, “Queen of my heart” – Westlife, “Soldiers of the Queen” – Strike up the Band,, “Under pressure” – Queen with David Bowie and closing with “Quem pastores”- Traditional German tune.

Thanks to Marian for acting as DJ and part-time scribe and the “refreshment” and “chair management” teams.

The Music Appreciation Group will now go into recess for the winter and return on Friday, 17th May, 2019 at in Church when the “alphabet trail” will continue with “R” themed music of all genres with the usual £2. donation.
