Raising Funds for the RNLI

In Cornwall, there are two very well-known songs …

• The Cornish Floral Dance

• Trelawny (Cornwall’s ‘National Anthem’)

The original ‘Floral Dance’ is a very popular recording, made famous by the Australian

Operatic Baritone, Peter Dawson, in 1913. Many years later, in 1978, the instrumental

version of the tune secured the Number Two position in the UK charts with Terry

Wogan & the Brighouse & Rastrick’s ‘Floral Dance’. It is a highly popular, and well loved

tune … having already secured more than £2,100 for the RNLI!

Our quality recording, released in 2014, is a truly Cornish version. It is recorded by

the Helston Town Band (the originators of the ‘Floral Dance’) and a locally born

internationally renowned tenor … John Treleaven!

Also, we are told that John’ son, Lawrence, is currently working on a project to make a film about his Dad:

John’s story saw him go from a junior in the stores at Helston Garages to an international opera star.
