It's difficult for everyone right now, being separated from loved ones.
For us, being part of CPOF isn't just about the music, it's about the friendships too. Over the years, we've been at each other's weddings, seen babies born, watched them grow up, and generally been a large part of each other's lives.
This is our conductor, Emma's, arrangement of Percy Grainger's "Londonderry Air" - a beautiful piece of music in its own right, but also music that reminds us of "that" scene in the film Brassed Off where the band gather to play outside the conductor's hospital ward. To us, that sums up being part of CPOF - being amongst friends who become family and where anyone is welcome.
We've included some memories from over the years, to remind us of the good times that have been and that will happen again once we can be together again.
Finally, thank you again to Emma & Paul Kennedy, for their efforts in putting this together.
