Four Orchestral Suites
Composer: Gordon Pascoe
The "Orchestra" is the "Lantzvilr Virtual Orchestra" (my computer, using Sibelius s/w)
Heritage site of St. Mary's. In memory of my piano teacher, Mr. Tresize who played wonderful Olde Cornish Celtic music for me.
Four of us taking an impromptu Friday afternoon absence from Carn Thomas school (1955) and getting "caned" on Monday morning.
Walking 'round the Garrison and enjoying the views.
A name that appears far back in the family tree. Imagining her dancing . . . .
But they will be very hard to spot in this video - but keep a lookout for the Giant's Footsteps.
From tales of a real ruined cottage & a fictional woman on Samson. What views! Includes the cottage where my great-great-grandmother was born.
A traditional autumn bonfire and fireworks on Buzza Hill
A childhood playground. Kick-The-Can, Hide'n'Seek, Cops & Robbers.
A selection of boats. Available on YouTube
Reflections during an evening on the hill above the Lifeboat slip. Peaceful.
An old military gun emplacement site on the "lower" walk 'round the Garrison. The sunsets from here are often magnificent.
A trip to the Eastern Islands to adore the Mother Goddess on Nor-Nour.
Symphony No. 3 "Scillonia"
A fork in the road with bonfires and old Celtic festivals.
Remembrances from the knoll above my childhood school
A favourite family picnic jaunt.
Fishing in the "Kestrel" with Uncle Jack near the Seven Stones. Legends came to mind. And yes, we were nearly wrecked.
