Join the chorus for Truro Cathedral’s Diaspora Carol service, which takes place at Truro Cathedral on Thursday 20th December from 7.30pm.
Singers from all over Cornwall are welcome to take part but you must be able to attend at least three of the rehearsals. The Truro group will learn three carols and the Lostwithiel group will learn a different three.
Rehearsals in Truro begin on Saturday 24th November at the Old Cathedral School, just behind the cathedral, 2pm to 4pm every Saturday until the concert. (Arrive from 1.30pm on the first session to register, £10 one off joining fee for sheet music, CDs and recordings available via Dropbox and Soundcloud).
Rehearsals in Lostwithiel begin on Sunday 25th November at the Church Rooms from 2pm to 4pm every Sunday until the service. (Arrive from 1.30pm on the first session to register, £10 one off joining fee for sheet music, CDs and recordings available via Dropbox and Soundcloud).
To sign up email Emma Mansfield at firstname.lastname@example.org
The service at Truro Cathedral is free and seats are available on a first come first serve basis but there is plenty of room.
What’s special about this selection of yule-tide songs is that they have travelled the globe. They left our homeland during the 1800s as Cornish miners and their families headed off to the mines of New World and are still sung in California and South Australia today.
We would like to thank Truro Cathedral, FEAST, Arts Council England for funding and supporting this project.
