The Tristan Song Project is an unlikely collaboration between the children of St Mary's School on the world's most remote inhabited island and the young pupils of Tony Triggs, a private teacher of music in Norfolk, England. The St Mary's pupils wrote poems, while Tony and his own young pupils turned them into songs. The Project resulted in performances for visiting tourists and the publication of a song book, whose sales provided St Mary's School with guitars and other instruments.
