Singers from all over Cornwall performed in Truro Cathedral creating an evening of carols, poetry and prose to celebrate the history of the Cornish diaspora.
Funded by Arts Council England and FEAST, this 12 month project galvanised over 180 voices from all over Cornwall to learn the carols and Christmas music that travelled with the Cornish to the new world mines during the 1800s.
The three different choirs led by Hilary Coleman, Emma Mansfield and Matt Thomason, shared songs still sung in South Australia, California and Cornwall today. The service also included new writing by Bert Biscoe and Mercedes Kemp with readings from Simon Parker and Mary Woodvine.
We would like to thank the Very Reverend Roger Bush and his team for help us create such a memorable moment in Cornish history.
