Parsons Music

David writes:
The time has come to collect together some of the recordings and videos made by the family.

I fear this collection will be much centred on my own music and performances, but I'd like them to be there in case any children or grandchildren may be interested.

My own compositions have always been very conventional, Victorian, even. They have usually been written for some occasion, a church setting, or a piece for a particular concert, and I am quite aware they have no greatness! But I hope they are always tuneful, and would make acceptable background music.

Anyway, here I begin the collection.
