Status: Partially found

An unknown choir piece recording was sampled by The Caretaker (Leyland Kirby) in his song Friend's Past, Re-united on his album A Stairway to the Stars.

A Stairway to the Stars by The Caretaker 2001

The sample comes from a 1960s recording of a choir performing an unidentified piece of music. Only 50-60 copies on vinyl were made for the members of the choir and conductor. Leyland Kirby was able to find two copies of it in a shop in the 1990s, but the rest of the copies are "impossible to find". [1] Also, the choir/church in the recording is unknown.

Kirby owns two copies of the record, though he has not released them publicly.

The recording has also been sampled on Selected Memories From The Haunted Ballroom, Deleted scenes, forgotten dreams and Everywhere at the End of Time, also by Kirby.
