The Ballad of the Great War 1917
11 Nov 2017 - Radio 2 - 21.00
For the latest programme in the Radio Ballad series, Barry Coope joins The Thurnscoe Harmonic Male Voice Choir to sing his arrangement of ?Trench Raid?, a new song written by Sean Cooney of The Young ?Uns.
Formed in 1924 by miners working in the Yorkshire village of Thurnscoe, Barry says the choir were ?great to work with.?
The Radio Ballad of the Great War 1917 also includes a first chance to hear Jim Boyes & Maarten Decombel as the new duo perform ?Passchendaele?, a song by Jim which was specially commissioned for the programme.
