This project will also be recorded and has been generously sponsored by Jack and Hilary Eldridge who have enjoyed listening to William Towers since the early days of Armonico. The recording of this CD has been made possible by a gift from Hilary, Jack and his mother Peggy, in memory of Jack’s father, Angus John Eldridge. Angus loved music all his life and would have been delighted with this memorial.
