The 2nd of our October Echoes from Essex Podcasts 

Slime Mould?! ….. a most beautiful and mysterious animal-plant, investigated for us by UK expert Dr Gothamie Weerakoon of the Natural History Museum. She is joined by Maureen Measure from Leyton Historic Society and Dr Patricia Fara to discuss it’s importance in the life of local mycologist Gulielma Lister (1860-1949).
The music, reflecting the Lister family’s outdoor life includes:

“May Day Carol: The hedges and fields” for three unaccompanied equal voices by Imogen Holst; Words & Original Song from  Journal of the Folk-Song Society; Collected by Lucy E Broadwood in 1898 from Mr Faircloth, carpenter of Fowlmere, Cambridgeshire; Sung by Frances M Lynch, Margaret Cameron & Jenny Miller from evt.

“O we’ll go this day a rugglin’”  for solo male voice by Frances M Lynch, sung by Gwion Thomas & Essex Virtual Choir.

The series presenter is Frances M Lynch, Artistic Director of electric voice theatre. Part of  electric voice theatre’s Essex 2020 Minerva Scientifica project “Echoes from Essex” in collaboration with Chelmsford Civic Theatre.
