Thanks Janet, Good recording--timely too with the recent recognition of Cornish National minority status: Quite a few students over the years at Newcastle who are active in Cornish music and dance. It would be good to see a 'Furry dance' tune too one of these days! Thanks for these, all the best, Simon.
