WATERMEAD STORY : The original cassette was recorded in September 1995 at the White House Recording Studios, Syston. Members of St Theresa’s choir along with singers from our apostolate took part in the recording - a total of 21 adults and 15 children.  The funding for this recording was made possible through the sale of Father John’s notes for “Getting to Know the Bible”.  We had to be careful not to go over budget, hence the one-colour ink (green) for the cassette insert.

It is this cassette (affectionately described as “From the Womb to the Tomb” by Monsignor that drew wider attention to our music apostolate, receiving favourable reviews and many appreciative letters.  It’s popularity long after the cassettes had sold out encouraged us to arrange this transfer to CD in 2005.
