A week of choral workshops in St Saviour's Church in the beautiful Cornish village of Polruan on the South Coast, culminating in a concert at the nearby St Wyllow's Church, Lanteglos. The concert will include the world premiere of Peter Skellern's moving setting of the Beatitudes in Cornish, and is given in aid of the restoration of St Ildierna's - a medieval church in the village of Lansallos, which was sadly damaged by an arson attack that destroyed the roof and organ.
