OVERVIEW A collection of some of the music that began Watermead music - from the first ‘raw’ recording of the hymn 'Our Song Gives Praise' (live in the church) to the studio recording of 'Vivan los Ninos' for the charity 'Let the Children Live'.

WATERMEAD STORY Originally prepared as a gift to members of the choirs and singers involved over the years, becoming a valuable archive of original recordings. The CD was initially put together as a limited edition gift for the people involved in those early recordings - a thank you to the people who began Watermead. It is now made available to anyone interested in sharing the development of our music.
