... from Mevagissey Male Choir
Still looking forward to seeing all our followers before the year is out!
Quay Concerts cancelled!
Reluctantly, and regrettably, it has been decided to abandon our plans to resume our traditional quay concerts on the Mevagissey quayside this summer.
While it might have been possible for us to spread out sufficiently, our main concern is the proximity of the audience. There are more people than ever in Mevagissey this year and, sadly, it is proving difficult for everyone to observe socially distancing advice, and, unfortunately, it would be possible for us to marshal the crowds on the quayside sufficiently to reduce the risk.
Meanwhile, we are exploring one or two other options for late summer and we will keep you advised.
Meanwhile, of course, you can buy, or download, any of our CDs or individual recordings here. And, for just £2:50, you can download ‘Back to the ‘60s’, a track from our eagerly awaited next CD – by clicking here. Every penny raised by this 11-minute track goes to Cornwall Hospice Care.
Meanwhile, Friend of the Choir Matthew Facey has kindly given us permission to show some of his wonderful photos to remind you of Mevagissey.
At Mike Watson’s funeral in June, we sang ‘Haven of Rest’. George Phillips says a friend of his who was present told him: ‘It made a deep impression on me when you all sang it at Mike’s funeral, and I have been trying to get a recording of it ever since. I have tracked down one or two versions on my iPlayer but none as good as your choir’! (our italics). However, Chris Williams had made a recording at Peter Foard’s Memorial concert years ago, which he dug out for George’s friend. And here it is.
