Digging through clippings from the excellent & missed Making Music mag, discovered PJ Harvey sent a demo, reviewed in the June 1989 issue.

I'm presuming this is where you got the picture from, Romario: http://www.ywmp.org.uk/herstory-1, so apart from that, no. well found, though!

The choir organiser, Sammy Hurden, has her own website which mentions working on Let England Shake: http://sammyhurden.com/page5.htm, and so she did - she's credited with arrangements and vocals on 'The Colour of the Earth', so Polly kept some connection with her. Very interesting!

Ah, I should check that more. In that case glad to be able to contribute!

One of the intriguing aspects of this relates to the PJ-and-feminism debate we sometimes have. Despite all Polly's publicly-recorded comments about never having felt disadvantaged by being female, not really identifying with women, not sympathising with feminism, and not exactly going out of her way to include women in what she does, here she is, early on in her career, taking part in an overtly feminist music project. I wonder how the two relate to each other.

^ Ironic indeed.

I saw that picture a few days ago on one of the two PJ FB groups. Don't remember which one. Is it just me or is the picture gone now?

This site mentions that Kate Garrett (the choir member from Dorset who later founded the Young Women's Band Project) was in a band with PJ:
http://www.blue-kite.org.uk/html/bklinks.html

Quote:
Kate Garrett (R.I.P. 1972 - 2009) her musical career started in a school band with P.J. Harvey, then she was in the Mystics, who did the whole major label, touring the States thing. Then she had her own band - the KGB - who managed a busy international gig schedule. She wrote twilight songs blending otherworldy acoustics with left-field experimentalism. She was a consumate musician. She was also in blue kite.

Quite a nice collection there. Some I don't recall seeing before.

Thank you - it seems to be a cut-down version of this one where you get the Orthodox saints as well : )https://s4.afisha.ru/mediastorage/c6/6b/813f797f73574fd1b9dd0c156bc6.jpg

Polly put a couple of images from this 2016 photo session on her Instagram, but I can't see that anyone has linked to the full article here. There are some less familiar pictures, especially the mirror-shots at top and bottom.
