A recording was made at our Good Friday meditation on 6 April 2012, and these .mp3 files of the music were converted from the CD produced primarily for participants as a momento of the occasion.

The microphones were of high quality (grateful thanks to Northern Light for lending them), but the only possible position for them was on the stage at the rear of the church. Also the acoustics were very different from the rehearsal because of the very full church, and the recording equipment had to be set to run unattended, so don’t expect stunning sound. Note that the editing has been minimal, with no opportunities for re-takes, so any mistakes or duff notes are still there!

These files can be played from the site: on most set-ups, your browser will open up a new tab with an instance of Windows Media Player (or whatever is your default application for playing audio files).

It’s probably best however to download the files by right-clicking and choosing Save Target As. But be aware that the files are large (from 0.62M for Jesus said, Father forgive to 8.48M for the Processional to Calvary), so don’t try this unless you have a broad-band connection.
