Only rarely do I reopen discussions on the respective merits of different versions of songs featured in the Cover Story series.
This is not such an occasion. It is intended simply to bring to your attention a thoroughly uplifting choral interpretation of Bells of Rhymney, a powerful song from the South Wales coalfield with lyrics by Idris Davies, a miner who became a poet and teacher, adapted by Pete Seeger.
The Sheffield Folk Chorale is the work of Graham Pratt, one half of the duo that brought us such excellent music including Ned of the Hill, featured here yesterday.
The choir is necessarily silent during the coronavirus lockdown. My thanks to Graham - "yes, that's me conducting, with the venue lights bouncing off my bald pate!" - for bringing them back to performing life, albeit via YouTube.
In sad times, it's a tonic.
