A set of three songs for voices in harmony inspired by images and celtic phrases from Brittany, Cornwall and Wales.
Lyrics JULIE TONKIN Bradford on Avon/Cornish poet, writer and Songways singer
Music JANE HARRIS Director of Songways
Our Celtic Song Trio is the happy result of a year-long collaboration. It was first performed in Bath in May 2019 by Songways.
The songs are inspired by images and celtic phrases from Brittany, Hep skoazell trevell – single-handed endeavour, Cornwall – Kescana kescolon – to sing together with one accord and Wales – Ymddisgleirio – to shine forth.
When the songs are sung together as the Celtic Song Trio, each one moves fluidly into the next, creating a sense of completeness and a satisfying whole.
Recordings of the songs are available on Jane’s album, One touch of nature.
