  • Turner is me Peter Turner. My brother Simon must have just left.

  • This was just after my time in the sopranos but I recognise and knew some of the members named. I was in the choir from about 1965 to 1973.

  • BTW, Hart is third from left, front row. I think Hunt is the lad to the right of me in the picture.

  • One of them must be ‘Hunt’. I always remember him getting yelled at and the piano lid getting slammed!

  • Great picture.
    I was an Alto in the Mens Section of the choir at this time.
    There were approx 10-12 men.
    David Bell was a recording artist for EMI and travelled the world as a musician.
    I would like to know what happened to him after this time.
    He must have left about 1975’ish.

  • Thanks Jon for helping to fill in some of the names which I have now inserted. Can you indicate which one was Hart as after nearly forty years I cannot now put a face to that name
