Lumsdaine's poetic collage was recorded on location at the Durham Miners' Gala, 1971 - a large annual gathering associated with the coal mining heritage of the region, and known as The Big Meeting. This remarkable work assembles snatches of brass bands, choirs, speech and song alongside the sounds of a historic occasion.

"Big Meeting is remarkable not only as a technical feat — I can't think of a electronic work that gives a more vivid sense of movement within a particular geography —but also as a haunting evocation of a lost world. If the sound of the miners' hymn in Durham Cathedral doesn't bring a tear to your eye, you must be one of the Koch brothers" Alex Ross, The Rest is Noise
