Subject: RE: History behind the Cadgwith Anthem
Hi Lucy,

No. Kashmire was just a typo. The pronunciation is the same. I don't think we're any nearer finding the origin of this song. There seems to be no trace of it before 1953, and it could be a local composition that didn't travel out of the village. The pub used to sell a wonderful cassette of the singing there. I don't know if they still do.
