Some time between 1950 -1955 the Choral Society made a gramophone record. The recording took place in the school hall in the capable hands of our conductor Mr Davies. Horror of horrors, when the recording was processed, the sound of trams could be heard in the background. The performance was re-recorded with the hall windows closed. I hope this anecdote may prompt others to comment.

On the record which we made in 1951 (Easter Hymn from Cavalier Rusticana) the soloist was Ann DARWIN.
