Nigel Ratcliffe reports that the ten tracks for the “Miracles” fundraising CD have been recorded and four of them have been mixed. Some local Singer-Songwriters have donated their compositions to what will be a high quality item both musically and audibly. It will also be available as download on the internet. We are hoping to do the mastering, duplication, and packaging, from the third week of April and have the CDs to sell in early May. Full marks to Paul Linale at White Room Music for generously donating use of the state of the art studio and his experience and expertise to the project .
