'The Windmills Keep Turning'

It is Easter Monday on the Sussex Downs. A windmill, surrounded by daffodils, stands on a hill. A chorus of Sussex villagers are celebrating with an Easter Fair and a parade of Easter Bonnets.

  "Half-way up the Mountain" or "The Five Talismen" is a Musical Story of a quest in the Silver Jubilee Year of 1935 by Peter Cork.

It was performed by the pupils and staff of Clapham County School in July 1976.

The discovery of a concert programme and a reel-to-reel monophonic tape recording of 'A Concert of Music by Peter Cork', given at Walsingham School on Friday, 15th July 1977 at 7:30pm, provides us with an opportunity to listen to Peter Cork introducing 'The Windmills Keep Turning'.

The Walsingham School Choir sing the number, whilst Peter Cork plays the piano accompaniement.
