A number of our events have involved music - live or recorded, as choral concerts and soundtracks to various shows and presentations. These all offer a wide range of style to reflect the nature of the event. Many are available as full video DVDs under our Video gallery (and store!), but are also available as standalone music CDs.

Place your mouse over a cover to play an excerpt from each; move away to stop.  Have a look at the track listing for each CD and then click on a blue basket to go to our 'Store' - and buy.

 

Music

'Ten Years of Friendship' Soundtrack

An eclectic collection of mood music, with tunes ranging from folk to techno, setting the scene for our 2007 show marking the tenth birthday of The Friends' charity and illustrating what the charity has achieved during that time.



'Bricks & Water' Launch Soundtrack

A slideshow presented in the VIllage Hall at Clapham & Patching in 2000 (and then Findon Village Hall in 2001) to launch our Millennium Book included this soundtrack of mixed contemporary and classical pieces, instrumental and vocal.



'Winter, Wassail & Worship' Soundtrack

Featuring the Clapham & Patching Singers - songs from the Christmas Concerts held in both churches in 2004. They ranged from medieval wassail songs to Irving Berlin and Johnny Mathis, and showed off the choir's remarkable quality - it's just like a professionally-recorded CD!

 

 

'Carols Around the World' Christmas Concert

At Patching Church on 20th December 2015, a lessons and carols service was held which featured carols from around the world sung by our choir, together with readings and congregational carols. The seasonal songs ranged from China to Canada via Australia and Africa!

 

 

Gala Concert 1996

The very first fund-raising event for The 'Friends' -
a Gala Concert and dinner held in the Village Hall in 1996 to showcase the musical talent of the villagers, young
and not so young. This is the audio soundtrack featuring fifteen 'artistes', all villagers and friends, young and
not-so-young.
