Through the website www.friendsreunited.com a number of original choir members have got together and have asked PAMRA, the Performing Artists Media Rights Association, to collect royalties on their behalf. The Wall album has sold 12 million copies worldwide. At the time the children’s school received a payment of 00. Not all of the choir members have yet been confirmed or identified and it appears that no paperwork exists from the session.
