Listen to the group

Here is the group’s rendition of the gospel song ‘Where Could I Go But To The Lord’ which is a traditional song arranged for the group as four-part harmony vocals by the Welsh conductor Alwyn Humphreys.

The song was recorded by Elvis Presley in 1967 and included on his album ‘How Great Thou Art’.

Athelstan House Visit

Whilst in the Malmesbury area today I dropped in at Athelstan House Рa venue well known to our group although we have not been booked for a period of time.

I was greeted at reception by a man who recognised me, although I did have to explain the reason why he knew me! I emphasized how our group had been regular entertainment for the residents (since 2011) and was wondering why we had not been asked back since our last performance (12 months ago).

It appears that the activities co-ordinator Emily has left the care home, and presumably her replacement has no knowledge of our group. I gave the man one of our cards for him to pass on to the current activities co-ordinator – who is now on holiday.

I am sure this behaviour is common across many residential/care homes: the information regarding entertainment activities is kept by the co-ordinator and they take that information with them when they leave. The homes really should take more ownership of this valuable asset.

‘Golden Tracks’ Now Available

The latest album from End Of The Track is now available for sale to our fan base.

150 copies were received this morning from the supplier and went on sale at today’s performance in River House, Chippenham. Six copies were immediately snapped up by a section of the audience. The Elvis track ‘Where Could I Go But To The Lord’ seemed to generate a great deal of interest following its premier performance at the event. The music for this track was arranged for our group by Alwyn Humphreys – Conductor Emeritus for the Morriston Orpheus Choir.

The group have decided to maintain the same price for this album as for the previous one Р£6.00. If anyone would like to purchase a copy of the album and cannot attend our upcoming performances then they can contact the group leader Рcontact details are available on our website (www.eott.co.uk).
