Greetings

... from Mevagissey

…and one of Cornwall’s most accomplished and entertaining choirs.

We are still singing!! Every Monday, our normal practice night, we are meeting on Zoom and running through our repertoire with MD Graham Willcocks and Accompanist Matt Fox. Sadly, the technology isn’t yet of sufficient quality for us to broadcast this, but we want to be ready for when we can perform for you again.

 

We would now be preparing for our Christmas concerts, but, of course, these have all been cancelled, including our regular fund-raiser for St Petroc’s, the ‘homeless’ charity.

To try to compensate, we have decided to donate all this year’s proceeds from sales of our ‘Sing for the Child’ CD to St Petroc’s. So please, if you can, help by ordering the CD here It costs just £10, including postage. Alternatively, you can download it here from the website for just £5. Individual tracks can be downloaded for just 50p apiece.

‘Sing for the Child’, our first and only Christmas cd, comprises eleven popular yuletide pieces, including three traditional carols in which we are joined by Mevagissey Ladies Choir. It also features the Choir’s recording of ‘Do You Hear What I Hear?’, which was broadcast on BBC1’s ‘Songs of Praise’ last Christmas, and a stunning four-part arrangement of the Bing Crosby classic, ‘White Christmas’.

 

Meanwhile, thank you to all those who have supported Cornwall Hospice Care by downloading ‘Back to the ‘60s’, a track from our yet unpublished next CD, by clicking on the link elsewhere on this page. To date we have raised £700 for the hospice, who have written thanking us (see below).

For you folks unfortunate enough to live outside this beautiful part of the world, we have also uploaded a stunning video of Mevagissey taken by Sally Mitchell of the Roseland’s Design Room studio.

We’ve also added a gallery of photos of Mevagissey and St Austell Bay, taken recently by Choir members and friends, to remind you of Mevagissey and the local area.

Back in August, nineteen of our members plus Graham Willcocks were at the Eden Project as guests of BBC Songs of Praise. We were asked to mime to four of our recordings, the first of which was broadcast on 6th September. We were all properly socially distanced and all the necessary Covid protocols were observed.

What people say about us

We bought the CD after the Minack concert and whilst listening to 'Cornish Hearts' as we drove home, I was amazed to realise that I was crying

 Attending your rehearsal last September was a highlight of our trip to England. As a chorister, I am impressed by your sound, your musicianship and your leadership. Your CDs are now a staple in our house, and impress all our guests!

I just want to tell you how much I adore my CD, which I bought on the harbour at Mevagissey in August. We had been walking the coastal path and were sitting eating fish and chips and watching dolphins when we heard musical sounds coming from the harbour.  To our surprise, we found your choir singing. It was the highlight of my holiday. I knew and loved most of the songs, the setting was fabulous and the whole atmosphere was ‘magical’. Your choir sing so beautifully and must bring so much joy to SO many people
