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.

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.

Spider, Frog and Singing

It has been very Autumnal in the garden today and I noticed several spiders busy in their webs. This was the only successful photo though as they were constantly on the move.

A frog has turned up in a tub of water on the patio. There are stones there so he can get out but I am hoping he is okay.

The new singing term started with The Inglehearts tonight and was such a joy. We have all missed our session. Tonight we learned a new song for World Peace Day on 21st September when we will be performing in Truro.

Lo yisa goi el goi cherev

Lo yil m’du od milchama

Lo yisa goi el goi cherev

Lo yil m’du od milchama

Lo yisa goi el goi cherev

Lo yil m’du od milchama

Lo yisa goi el goi cherev

Lo yil m’du od milchama

Nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor will they learn war any more.

Thank you, Claire.

Rehearsals in St Euny Churchyard

It is less than two weeks to the start of our production of ‘Until the Day Break’!  Today was a choir rehearsal with The Ingleheart Singers and The Red River Singers for the whole route, planning who should sing where – very exciting! There were small character rehearsals going on too so here is a gallery to give you a flavour of our beautiful afternoon. Click on any photo for more detail.

St Piran’s Day, Singing and Marching for Our NHS

St Piran’s day is tomorrow and there have been parades all over Cornwall today. In Redruth, the rain held off just for the duration of the parade. The theme is both St Piran represented by his flag, black with a white cross,  and daffodils. Every local school takes part and the whole event is one of joy.

The start of the Parade with Redruth’s mascot, Tolgus the Lamb leading.

As part of the celebrations, my choir had been asked to sing Cornish songs and though the audience was quite small they were very enthusiastic.

I had to leave the performance early to catch the train to Truro, a train it turned out, which was full of people coming up from Penzance to the Save Our NHS March. There were tens of thousands marching in London and several hundred of us in Truro. This photo was taken at the end as the crowd is beginning to leave.

Love, Bosses and A Warmup 

The world is in such great need of love – we can each do our bit and be willing to practise.

This evening my choirs have sung in a very beautiful building, The Alverton Hotel in Truro which was a convent in a previous life. I loved the bosses on the ceiling.

We did our warmup in The Great Hall, another beautiful room.

Renghan Reveya, Christmas Tree and Thich Naht Hanh

A couple of days ago I asked if anyone had good ideas of how to use the beautiful little Fairytale Aubergines that I had just bought. Well, the greengrocer did! He had put a recipe book on the stall open at the page for Renghan Reveya, Round Aubergine Satay. What a brilliant feast-like meal we have just enjoyed! The recipe has been taken from Prashad Cookbook: Indian Vegetarian Cooking by Kaushy Patel. What a find!

Tonight The Ingleheart Singers have sung for the switching on of the tree lights in Troon. It was a delightful affair.

The following words are so important to remember and resonate with me just at the moment. Help in the form of love and kindness is what everyone needs to help through the suffering. Love to all my readers.
