We like to think that our repertoire is broader, with a more modern element, than most, embracing music from the classics, the theatre and pop, as well as more traditional choir pieces and music from Cornwall’s own rich choral heritage. We enjoy being stimulated both musically and linguistically and, under long-serving Music Director Graham Willcocks, we have succeeded in tackling many challenging four-part arrangements. To appreciate our sound, and our versatility, click here.
Bohemian Rhapsody, perhaps the most iconic of the late Freddie Mercury’s many hits, features Second Tenor Graham Hoskins on guitar. Not for faint-hearted male voice choirs! Many choirs sing Nessun Dorma, but few attempt it in Italian. Our interpretation has often brought the house down.
Sung partly in Zulu, Homeless, featuring the late, much-missed, Robin Hunkin, is a 1986 song by Paul Simon and Joseph Shabalala. Remember Blue Moon by the Marcels? You will when you hear this! And we turn to showtime for Anthem from Chess. Traditionalists, meanwhile, may prefer Morte Christe.
Finally, to the right you can watch a video and listen to one of the pieces that we’re most frequently asked to sing as an encore. Lower Lights is firmly in our roots and reminds us and our audiences that we are a choir from a working fishing village.
More recently we have added: Au Fond du Temple Saint, (from Bizet’s ‘Pearl Fishers’); Queen's Fat Bottomed Girls; Only You, à la The Flying Pickets; the powerful Canadian anthem, We Rise Again; Andy Williams favourite, Home Lovin' Man; The Way We Were, from 'Love Story'; and our rousing Back to the '60s medley.
