Thames Valley Music

Here is a selection of TVMM sounds. There are currently three components.

Most importantly a set of TVMM tunes. They are mostly from the set of cassette tape recordings Cyril Smith made on practice nights in the 70's and 80's, complete with calls and other dance noises in the background. The music is mostly played by John Glaister, but there are others - Ron Horsley for one. There are also later recordings by other musicians, - these are identified by the musician's name in the file name. They are organised into tradition folders.

Secondly, there is a folder of folksongs sung by Clive Carey. Carey was an associate of Cecil Sharp and a collector mainly of folk songs. He was, though, the original notator of the Oddington morris tradition that Roy Dommett subsequently interpreted with the help of TVMM. He is buried in Claygate churchyard.

Thirdly, a substantial set of recollections made by Cyril Smith, a TVMM founder member. 

 

z Cyril Smith - Recollections

Not Music, of course, but these 24 tracks are digital copies of a series of cassette tapes recorded by our founder member Cyril Smith. They are unstructured and non-chronological recollections of his life. Many relate to TVMM but not all by any means. The first 9 tapes were recorded in 1989 when he was 85. He then returned with a brief update in 1995 after his 91st birthday (tape 10). His final effort was at the end of 1996 shortly before he died (tapes 11 & 12). There are also two tracks of Cyril's wartime recollections, recorded separately.
