Dick's Maggot*


Hunt the Squirrel*


Coronation Scot - Vivian Ellis*

Butterflies in the Rain - Sherman Myers (broadcast on Radio 3 on Wednesday 29th June 2011)*

We also recorded our contribution to the "Archers" Theme tune (Arthur Wood's Barwick Green) as part of Radio 3's Light Fantastic 'mega-mix' performance.

Barwick Green - Salford Symphony*

This was a project where Radio 3 invited a number of amateur orchestras to record the Archers theme. Following this, each recording was mixed with the contributions from other orchestras, into a "mega-mix".
