Original

This volume in Mark Tanner 's Cornish Pastiche series contains 15 traditional Cornish tunes, skillfully and imaginatively arranged for the Bassoon with Piano accompaniment. 'I ask myself can there be music more stirring than these old Cornish folk melodies. I am pleased to see my collection of these fifteen delectable ditties come to fruition in the form of arrangements for treble clef brass instruments. While many will find themselves humming the likes of Going up Camborne Hill, Lamorna or The Helston Furry Dance even before they have turned to the first page - for these are indelibly intertwined with Cornish culture – I wonder if I might draw your attention to The Cornish Squire, The Pool of Pilate and Cold Blows the Wind Today Sweetheart, which are quite simply sublime melodies, perhaps needing that extra bit of help in bringing them to mind nowadays. In the best tradition of musical hand-me-downs, Cornish folk music works equally ideally sung and played, and only by doing so on a regular basis can such traditions hope to continue forward with vigour and authority. without an energetic response from younger generations, Cornish folk music is destined to wither on the vine in much the same way as is happening with the Cornish dialect. So, put your instrument to your lips and proceed, not with caution, but with enthusiasm and a smile, for your great grandparents. and perhaps even their grandparents. would surely raise a glass if they could hear you doing your bit to ensure the survival of this splendid heritage. ' - Mark Tanner.
