B2: Tere Badian Ne Launa
Privately-funded record of Punjabi songs, recorded in Birmingham and presumably aimed at the large Asian community in the West Midlands. On reflection, there must be quite a number of this sort of record about, but they tend to slip under the radar. The songs sound like you might expect them to sound, with pattering percussion and that slightly wavering vocal style. The happy-sounding third track is the one that's best in tune with my western ears.

A: Monastic Beginnings; The Rebuilding; Dedication Of R.A.F. Chapel; Trumpet Fanfare And Roll Of Drums
B: Dissolution Of Monasteries; Poets Corner; The Great Bells; Crowning Of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II; State Trumpeters Coronation Fanfare
Mainly spoken word, with just a few sound recordings inserted - a bit like a short Radio 4 documentary on record. Interesting in a mild sort of way, though I prefer the three TV programmes that Alan Bennett did about the abbey - his laconic, slightly lugubrious approach appealed.

A: Raining In My Heart
B: Cold Feet
Functional but soul-less: the record label equivalent of concrete tower-blocks.

A2: In Dulci Jubilo

The Choir Of King's College, Cambridge; The English Chamber Orchestra

B1: Zadok The Priest
Stereo version of KC-1. Tasteful stuff, encapsulating the traditional English Christmas - the sort of thing that makes you wistful for bygone days and old certainties, if you let it. The English Chamber Orchestra joins in on the more exuberant second side.

Berliner Philharmoniker Dir.: Hans Rosbaud

A: Finlandia Op. 26 No. 7
B: Valse Triste Op. 44
Atmospheric 'A' side, veering from the warlike to the meditative and back again. I think I'll stick with the 'B', which is gentler and a touch more whistleable.
