Michael Sheehan was one of the last disciples of Reginald Morley-Pegge (1890-1972), horn graduate of the Paris Conservatoire, musicologist, and founder-member of The Galpin Society. While studying at Edinburgh University, Michael sang as a lay-clerk in the choir of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral. After service in the Army, during which he founded and directed the NATO-SHAPE HQ international military band in Belgium, he has settled in Shropshire where he plays horn for Wrekin Brass and orchestras in Wales and the West Midlands. He plays Flugelhorn for the Wellington (Telford) Brass Band, and sings as a gentleman of the Shrewsbury Abbey Choir.

David Fisher was trained at Trinity College of Music, London. After a career teaching privately, he now plays for many students taking music exams and accompanies three Shropshire Choirs. Being an FRCO, he also enjoys his work as a church organist.
