We remembered them

Singin’ in the Rain

Well – that’s the title of the song we are performing in this photo. But it certainly did rain on Friday 9th November when we sang at Truro Catholic Church. 

Together with St Stythians Band we had been invited to perform in a fund raising concert by the Truro branch of the Royal British Legion. The weather that day was just awful but it did clear up just as most of the musicians were arriving. We were able to share some truly beautiful music with Legion members, the Mayor of Truro, those daring souls who braved the elements and each other. The programme was designed to become more reflective as the evening went on and there were some exceptionally moving moments, including poetry, a piece involving The Last Post from the band and Rutter’s The Lord Bless You and Keep You from the Ladies.

In a weekend which was packed with commemorative events all over the world this was far from the best attended or the most successful financially. However the act of thoughtfully preparing music and words to share with others in the spirit of Remembrance shows the generosity of spirit and caring which continues to abound in the village of Stithians.
