Ideal Xmas gift - 'Voices Of Cornwall'

Voice of Cornwall

The Voices Of Cornwall series of CDs are not just a salute to Cornish culture. They’re a tribute to community and the universal sense of place we all need to stay grounded in a crazy, polarized world.

"As the clarity and brilliance of the natural light attract hundreds of painters to ‘Our Cornwall’, so the melodies, stories and iconic sounds have made a unique contribution worldwide. Cornish men and women have taken their joy of song and story, their delight in dialect and pride in performance to every continent.
The miners, the fishermen and the farmers have all added their unique voices and distinct characters to the kaleidoscope of colour, contrast, warmth and flavour of these enduring harmonies. The sounds, the scents and sights are part of Cornwall’s magnetic charm. In ‘The Voices of Cornwall: Kernow Through Story and Song’, a ‘Rainbow of Voices’ come together to prove that Cornwall truly is a treasure. – Douglas Williams MBE

To the fishermen:

All profits from the sale of the CD go to the Fishermen’s Mission in Cornwall. The charity provides emergency support alongside practical, financial, spiritual, and emotional care. They are there to help all fishermen, active or retired, and their families.
