Officials at one of Englandís many ancient churches gladly created a CD after receiving requests from as far away as Ghana. The squeaking footsteps and hum of passing cars were well received.

were the squeaking footsteps appreciated? the passing traffic? both equally?

were the sounds needed as sound effects someone in Ghana was creating?

were the squeaking footsteps and passing traffic just background noise to something ele that was going on? a wedding? funeral? christening? confirmation?

was someone doing a sponsored silence? was it a silence in memory of someone or something?

Is a missing sound more relevant than the recorded sounds? Would there normally be other relevant sounds where the audio was recorded? Is it a recording of people being silent? Of something else being silent? Is a protest relevant? A show of sympathy?

So, we have the record-makers, church workers and Ghana askers. Is anyone beside those people relevant?

Did the askers get what they expected?
Did someone tell something during the record?

Is it a famous church? Westminster Abbey? St. Paul's Cathedral? If neither of these, would it help for us to figure out the specific church?

Was the CD appreciated because of:
Sound that could be heard?
Sound that was absent?
Where it came from?
Something visual about the CD? Its case? Its jacket?
A physical property of the CD? Something it was made of?
Something else that was shipped with the CD?

If a different church had made and sent the same CD, would it also have been appreciated? If so, would any church have worked? Only some other churches? What if it wasn't a church at all?

Did the record help the askers to raise funds? Make them more credible? no to both

CD was listened to, possibly publicly, right? Did those who played the record to the listeners, know everybody in the audience personally?
The relevant reaction of listeners: joy? increase of faith? fear? giving money? sadness?

Sorry if I'm repeating, but I don't think this was asked: Was the record recorded in the church? Right outside?

Are the only sounds on the entire record cars and footsteps? Are the people walking and driving relevant? Would the askers have been satisfied if the tape was absolutely silent? Or if there were different background noises--say, whispering and rifling through pages?

Do the noises demonstrate the echoes in the church? Do they demonstrate something interesting (to the Ghaneans, at least) about the place where the church is located? Or how busy the church is?

So, just to check if I get everything well, tape with record of total silence and nothing but silence is OK and empty tape is not OK?
Could the askers have recorded tape of silence in their place? If yes, would it be OK for their purpose?

Was the CD itself recorded during a moment of silence at the church? Ok, it sounds like I created a misconception. It is a moment of silence that does not involve people being in the church, but rather just a silent period of time in which the church is (largely) empty Is the idea that, by listening to the recording, the listeners could symbolically share a moment of silence with people elsewhere in the world? no

I was thinking it was to sort of force people to be quiet so they could hear what was on the recording? Not forced, no. People listen because they want to.

Ok, the feature itself isn't audible, but the effects of it are (yopeishly)? - Does some feature of the church affect the normal ambient sound? e.g. echoes? Or a deadening of sound?

Do the listeners use the record as an exercise of patience (trying to listen to a silent tape till the end)? Do the listeners use the record to check their hearing abilities?
Do the askers buy the CDs only because they want to help the church to raise funds? Is there a contest involved to hear something particular on the records?

So, is the point here that the acoustics in this particular church are very good, reducing the background noise to some other recorded activity in the church? e.g. choir etc?

This feature is not solid, liquid or gas... is it one of those other odd chemical things like vapours or plasmas?

There's some feature of the church that causes a deadening of sound?

And this feature is the same invisible 'feature' that we're trying to work out?

So something invisible, that does not exist in any form but yet is proven to exist... is it a hole?! Or an absence-of-something?

starting to drift into philosophical questions of whether a hole 'exists' or whether it's just something that appears as consequence of the shapes of things around it... glergh! ;-)

******* SPOILER *******
Officials at England's 12th-century St. Peter's Church in Seaford, East Sussex, which is renowned for its eerie quiet, created a 30-minute CD recently of near-total silence, first as a small-scale fundraising project, but later for general sales (since word-of-mouth had attracted orders from as far away as Ghana). Those who have heard it said they could make out only the occasional squeaking of footsteps on the wooden floor (and the very distant hum of passing cars). Said one admiring parishioner, "People sometimes like to sit down and just have a bit of peace and quiet." [Daily Mail (London), 1-27-2013]

thanks to all who stuck with it!
