WHEN MINERS SANG: The Grass Valley Carol Choir, by Gage McKinney


When Cornish miners immigrated to America they brought with them a unique tradition of glee clubs and carol singing. This music had its public premiere at Grass Valley in 1875, and Cornish-inspired carol choirs have been performing ever since. A history of how and where it began, and who wrote, directed and performed the music.
