The No. 26 Mine Disaster

October 7, 2007 7:15 AM

Written by the incomparable Alistair MacGillivray (who rocks my socks), this song was written after an accident at the No. 26 Colliery in Glace Bay, NS in 1979.

It's a shame this song is not more well-known; I got it out of a songbook, but have never, ever heard it sung by anyone else. Apparently the Men of the Deeps do a choral version of it.

Yes. Beautiful as always LN. You might think about adding some tags, because as beautiful as this is, it is spooky!
