La Société Sercquaise launched their first CD in September 2009, Sark Voices, a collection representing some of the earliest sound recordings of traditional Sark songs and voices of Sark. They give a fascinating insight into the past life and times of the Sarkese including solos and choruses of folk songs as well as the sound of haymaking in the 50s and the Clameur de Haro, a Norman call for justice. (BBC Archives, produced by Ken Lees. With texts) - £10.00 including postage

Index to The Island of Sark by JLV Cachemaille
Susan Synnott has recently compiled and had published an index to JLV Cachemaille’s authoritative book The Island of Sark, which was originally written between 1874 and 1876 and was published in 1928. For any member who has this book and would like a copy of the index it is available free of charge but, of course, a compensatory contribution to La Société Sercquaise funds would be appreciated.
