Choirs of Angels

Glass all day ready for the market tomorrow – I now have a beautiful choir of angels – and then, this evening, I went singing with my beautiful choirs at Krowji for the start of the Christmas season. We can only sing in groups of ten so that we don’t block the corridors for all the people who have come to visit the artists’ studios. It’s quite a challenge with only two or three in each part.

Nasturtiums, Calianthus and Cake

Steady rain all day so these photos are from indoors and taken on a long zoom. The Nasturtiums have crept over the wall from next door and are a very welcome splash of colour in a dark corner.

I do love how drips collect on stems and flowers.

It will be our Annual Concert tomorrow evening with a visiting choir with whom we will do a workshop, then share a buffet supper before the doors are opened to our audience. My contribution to the buffet is a delicious dessert, Tunisian Almond and Orange Cake . You can find the recipe here

Soup, Estah’s Story and A Surprise

It has been a wild day with a wintery feel, down to 17C! I made a delicious warming soup of Squash, Sweet Potato and Carrot and loved how the chunks looked in the pan. The soup was pretty too.

At choir we have been rehearsing for a production in August. If you are local, it will be well worth going to see this story of the diaspora.

In my absence,  the wild winds had taken the top off one of our palm trees!

Dad’s Book, Singing and A Discovery

A delightful surprise today when a friend rang to say that she had seen a poster for a musical play of one of my Dad’s books! The Fate of Jeremy Visick is to be performed in a couple of weeks and of course, we now have tickets. The book was first adapted by Judith Cook and we all came down from Yorkshire to see the Premiere at The Barbican Theatre in Plymouth in 1990! It is so lovely to know that my Dad’s work is still being appreciated. We love the poster and think Dad would have approved.

Stage Struck and The Fate of Jeremy Visick

Thirteen singers from my two choirs met at the building site that is The Hall for Cornwall to entertain the dignitaries who were being shown around. We sang in the stair-well and the acoustics were brilliant. The audience in their hard hats and hi-vis jackets were very appreciative.

In the process of the building works, a beautiful gate has been discovered. It was buried inside a wall and dates from before 1914 so is well over 100 years old.  The plans have been altered a little to make sure this discovery is integrated into the new building.

Delightful discovery

Dawn, Rose and Kindness

Pink skies greeted us this morning.

I wore my best scarf this morning to say goodbye to one of our choir members.   Black and red are The Ingleheart Singers’ colours.

As always, top of my list  – be kind.

Be kind

ShelterBox Visit and Singing

Both my choirs collect for charities at our gigs and one we have supported this year has been ShelterBox. Click on the red link to find out what they do and to hear more of what they do, you can watch their Facebook Live that went out today.
Some of The Ingleheart Singers came this afternoon for a tour and to hear what the charity does, to give them our contribution and to sing live! Check it out here and take a look around the gallery.

If you would like to read other posts I have written about this splendid charity, put ShelterBox into my search  and several posts will come up.

Feather, Clematis and A Welsh Dragon

A delicate white feather became caught on the seed pods of a Crocosmia.

Feather

Lady Betty Balfour Clematis is one of my favourites. It is flowering rather early this year as it is supposed to bloom in September.

A number of The Ingleheart Singers have been to meet the two Welsh choirs who are visiting us from Port Talbot for our Grand Annual Concert tomorrow. As I was leaving the car park of their hotel,  I noticed the sunset reflection in their coach window above the magnificent Welsh Dragon.
