Christmas Music from the Hill

Thanks to BBC Radio Oxford for granting permission for their recording of the service from the chapel during the 1970's to be reproduced. The recording of the Christmas Carol service was made in 1955. This recording was salvaged by Lloyd Silverthorne (then a pupil) from the waste bin. It has since been converted from magnetic tape to CD, and now to MP3.
