‘Has been a feature in the Cornish musical landscape since 1931 and has long been one of Cornwall’s premier choral groups. Hailing from places as far afield as Truro and Coverack and ranging in age from thirty-something to eighty-something they unite once a week in Penryn to indulge and nurture their love of singing. The women of Mabe Ladies Choir take their music making very seriously, constantly striving to achieve the highest artistic and technical standards. That said, they do spend an inordinate amount of time laughing! Whether it’s in the rehearsal room or the concert hall the emphasis is on fun & enjoyment, for choir and audience alike.’

‘“Nankersey” is the old Cornish name for the village of Flushing, near Falmouth in Cornwall. The Choir was formed in 1949 and, originally named “The Nankersey Glee Singers”, held their first concert in 1950. The Choir is still based in Flushing and now has some 60 members drawn from across West Cornwall. Nankersey abides by its original motto, 'To sing for and to give pleasure' (one of their CD titles) ... The Choir has delighted audiences near and far, raising significant sums for charities, organisations and projects (in Cornwall, England and Jersey) by singing in the open air, village halls, chapels and churches, and (in company with other choirs) as part of the biennial Cornwall International Male Voice Choir Festivals and massed Choir events in the Royal Albert Hall.’

‘Situated between Falmouth,Truro and Redruth, Cornwall. You can see us out and about in the local area throughout the year ... The Band was founded in 1928, with not one of the 30 volunteer villagers being able to even produce a note on a brass instrument ... We are still going strong ... one of the busiest in the area, working throughout the year with a few contests and many engagements particularly in the summer season.’

Formed 1947: ‘Three words; tradition, success and charity, reflect the choir’s illustrious past and present. Only three Musical Directors in 70 years; choir members with over fifty years’ service. Cornish Choir’s Federation membership and support from the beginning. Awards at numerous music festivals, invitations to sing with other choirs countrywide and audience feed-back. Over the years, the choir has raised many thousands of pounds for a wide range of good causes’.

‘The Cornish have a proud tradition of expressing their loves, beliefs, hopes and fears through music. Songs chart the history of Cornwall's Methodist past, the hardships of life as a tin miner, the peril of those at sea, or the lament of the cousin jack, longing for family and familiarity whilst working a long way from home ... In 2010 we formed the Aberfal Oggymen with one purpose in mind: To sing Cornish songs in three part harmony, and to sing them in our community so they would never be forgotten. Apart from dropping the Aberfal from our name, [people kept thinking we were Welsh], nothing has changed since then.’

'The building is often sought after for concerts by local and national choirs and orchestras due to its sound quality but essentially it is an active place of worship. Our church organ is a fine instrument, enhancing worship considerably. It is probably one of the best instruments in the County.'
