The start of our 2017 tour!

B16Y3873

Our 2017 Hark! tour got off to a fine start at The Federation of Old Cornwall Societies’ Winter Event in Redruth on Saturday 4th November, where we gave a talk about our exploits and research. The talk was musically illustrated by The Red River Singers singing some of the carols featured in the book.

Hark! The Glad Sound of Cornish Carols

…and finally Ladies and Gentlemen we are pleased and hugely proud to be able to announce that our book Hark! The Glad Sound of Cornish Carols is now available! Please see below for information as well as the variety of launch dates around Cornwall. Many of them will see us returning to the places we recorded to say a huge thankyou to the singers and presenting a book to them, with, of course, a few carols on the way! We also have a few workshops on offer (Marazion and Liskeard) as well as book signings and talks . Hopefully there’s something for everyone so please come along and meet us and buy a book (or two – a great Christmas present!)

Cornish Carols are unique and to have a publication that brings together the essence of that is marvellous. The hours and miles will have been well worth it I am sure. Congratulations to Sally and Hilary for their achievement’. Roger Gool (Leader of Padstow Carollers)
Hark! The Glad Sound of Cornish Carols is a record of carols sung throughout Cornwall, in a variety of locations: church, pub, chapel, on the street, in people’s houses and at special occasions such as the Bodmin Wassail, Picrous Eve and St Just Feast – to show how embedded these carols are in their communities. ­

IMG_0366The book contains two CDs as well as scores and words, the background to the carols, the composers and reminiscences of people who sang them.

£19.99  ISBN 978 1 9999037 0 1
214 pages paperback

The book will be available on 15 November. To order, click here Francis Boutle website

Going up Camborne Hill – or Way down to Lamorna?  Take a journey into the rich traditions of Cornish pub singing at a free short course beginning on the 16th April in Madron.

The course is part of the Penwith Points of View heritage project and will be led Hilary Coleman and Sally Burley who have introduced Cornish songs to many singers.
Project co-ordinator Jane Howells “These five sessions will cover some of Cornwall’s best-known songs and the history and stories behind them.  Cornwall’s singing tradition is a distinctive and much-loved part of Cornish culture.  We are looking forward to some very enjoyable evenings and all are welcome.”
The course will also draw on a new book called ‘Shout Kernow’ by Hilary and Sally.  Hilary, who runs the Red River Singers says,
“The sessions will explore the treasures to be found in the book’s pages and some of the tales of our adventures into the world of Cornish pub singing.  Song words will be available and no music reading skills are necessary.”
The Traditional Cornish Singing course is free and begins at 7.15pm on Thursday 16th April in the Billiard Room, Landithy Hall, Madron. To reserve a place on the course contact admin@bewnanskernow.org
The Penwith Points of View project is a two-year heritage and culture programme taking place in the Madron area. The project is run by Bewnans Kernow, the partnership of Cornish cultural organisations.
