Last Night, Feather and A New Book

12 Aug

The concert last night was fabulous! St Euny Church was packed and the audience were so appreciative – standing ovations indeed! Being involved, I couldn’t take many photos but here is a moment of our joint rehearsal of Calon Lan with Cor Serenata, taken by our choir leader, Claire. (Sadly her battery ran out.).  I just have to say, that during the concert, standing among the Welsh singers as they sang the verses of Canon Lan, was a beautiful experience. We joined in the choruses  and that was lovely too. If you want to find me, I am back left at the top of the picture as the video plays.  Our concert was in aid of ShelterBox and the music department of Troon Primary School, where we rehearse each week.

The shared meal, all made by The Ingleheart Singers was also much appreciated.

Pudding time – a small selection!

I found a rain-dropped feather in our drive.

A friend of mine, Lesley Trotter, whom I first met while researching for last year’s production by Perthi Kov, ‘Until the Day Break’, has written a book , “The Married Widows of Cornwall” and I am privileged to have received the first advance copy. I started reading this morning and have been unable to put it down as Lesley begins to trace the histories of the women ‘left behind’ in Cornwall when their tin mining husbands went to work overseas.

I am posting early today as one of our beautiful daughters is arriving later with her two beautiful LiveWires and their Daddy is joining us all after finishing filming the cricket at Lords.  I also have to stop reading to get things ready!

    What lovely voices – even if the battery ran out – just enough to bring a smile to me here! Thank you! I see you found another feather 🙂 The book looks really interesting too. I can only imagine how excited you are about the family coming in. Enjoy!

    Apparently, the Portuguese had many similar wives left behind by husbands who came to places such as Angola ans Mocambique and South Africa.
