HOME FROM THE SEA
Home From The Sea
We hope you will enjoy this varied collection of songs from our recent repertoire, especially the title track which has been adopted as an anthem by the RNLI.
The Choir is always keen to learn and perform new music and this album features songs from Ireland, America and even a bush song from New Zealand, as well as more modern Cornish pieces. The Mermaid Of Zennor has been given to us by its composer, Tony Cliff, and we are delighted to include arrangements from Goff Richards, Tony Tournoff and our own Steve Lawry.
Two Choir members feature as soloists – David Ceredig-Evans in Lean On Me and Colin Trevorrow in The Star Of County Down. Nigel Wicken (organ) and Maureen Nicholls (flute) have also kindly shared their talents. Many of the songs have fine accompaniments, and you will hear Annette Turton playing the grand piano splendidly.
