Un Corff are a movable group of musicians who came together originally to play at the Gower Show in the summer of 2012. Un Corff means One Body in Welsh and the name reflects the desire among many Christians today to go beyond the human-conceived, denominational. boundaries. One body. One God. One church. The musicians themselves come from various denominations and from no denomination. The group varies in size depending on where or when they're playing but so far has been drawn from Fr Tim Ardouin (guitar and vocals), Mark Hutfield (bass guitar), Rob Howells (percussion), Sarah Leedham (fiddle), Rob Charles (keys), Dr Jo Judge (sax) Rev Dr Stephen Roberts (sax), Wendy Wilcox (vocals), Alex Clapson (guitar). The group are preparing material for recording, which they will do with the production and guidance of Paul Carman and Andy King. Here are three songs recorded live at the vicarage in Llanrhidian ahead of a radio performance. Ardouin, Hutfield, Howells, Leedham and Charles are playing. The songs were written by Ardouin. Recordings are courtesy of Rob Charles.
Travelling Woman is a metaphor for the loving invitation of God to 'outsiders', to know and experience that they are already 'insiders' to God.
Remember Me is set on the night before Jesus was crucified. It follows the Last Supper and the betrayal of Jesus by his followers.
Bed of Roses is about the many ways we betray Jesus, not least by making an image of him according to our own specs. It is about complacency in faith.
