This collection features songs drawn from opposite corners of England which during the 20th century experienced catastrophic decline in their traditional local industries: Cornwall now relies heavily on tourism and Tyneside has become a centre for science-based technology. Traditionally, both have maintained a proud tradition of community music-making and we feature sea songs with Cornish baritone Ben Luxon and the Holman-Climax Male Voice Choir, whilst much-loved Geordie bass Owen Brannigan sings airs from Tyneside, and patriotic songs (Heart of Oak, Bay of Biscay)
