'The aim of the Society is to present on excellent sound equipment a broad range of classical music on compact disc, selected from the whole of the recording era, circa 1900 to the present day. Programmes include a wide variety of orchestral, chamber, instrumental and vocal music, chosen and presented by members and by visiting specialists, giving background about the music or performers ... Visitors are very welcome at any of our meetings. Whether you come with a friend or alone, you will find the atmosphere friendly and welcoming.'

Founded 1956: ‘Friendship was one of the core reasons the Festival came into being; that, plus a belief on the part of the founders that sacred music is at the very heart of the liturgy (a form and arrangement of public worship laid down by a church or religion) – and the need to fundraise for a new Church roof ... The festival has flourished, and today it lasts for eight days at the end of August, from Compline by candlelight on the Sunday evening, to Eucharist on the following Sunday morning of the Bank Holiday weekend’.

'This Site is dedicated to two English music sessions that run on alternate weeks in Bath and Bradford on Avon. On this site we want to tell you about the sessions and what to expect at them. We also want to tell you about the music we play and provide resources for people who want to know more ... It’s amazing how little the English know about their own music and dance. We have a rich tradition of music and song that’s the equal of anywhere else in Europe, but you wouldn’t know that from listening to the English media! Catch the Irish or the Scots doing that!'
