'Nowadays, we take for granted easy access to recorded music, through internet streaming, a myriad of radio stations and on portable music players ... However, the pleasures of listening to music in the company of other like-minded individuals, and connected with an informative talk, still remain relevant, and this is the core mission of the Croydon Recorded Music Society. The programmes are given by our own members, by members of other music societies and by professional visiting speakers.'

‘The Croydon SDA Gospel Choir is quite unique. It possesses the heart and soul, the vivacity and energy of a gospel choir, yet a diversity which is hard to find elsewhere. After all, where else are you going to find a choir which the press describes as giving a "superlative performance" of.... an eighteenth century Classical piece of music, sung in Latin with an orchestra?The choir's ethos is to be different, to stand apart from the crowd, not for its own sake, not to say “we are different”, but because it believes passionately that it has been placed in this world for a purpose - and that is to reach people of diverse backgrounds and differing situation.’
