A VOICE FOR CATHEDRAL MUSIC

About our fundraising projects

Cathedral Choirs Sing Forever

Sing Forever

Inspired by fundraising for the Cathedral Choirs’ Emergency Fund, the team of musicians at Norwich Cathedral decided to organise a lockdown recording to help highlight the current uncertainty faced by many cathedrals and choral foundations.

 

Aled Jones, Elizabeth Watts, Anna Haestrup, William Miles-Kingston and over 250 choristers from all over the UK have joined together for this beautiful rendition of Sing Forever by Robert Prizeman and arranged for this project by Ashley Grote, Master of Music at Norwich Cathedral.

 

We are so grateful to the soloists and the cathedrals and other choral foundations who have got involved in this project, resulting in such a moving piece of music.

The Choral Scholars Virtual Evensong

 

The Choral Scholars; from Bristol, Worcester, Exeter, Truro, Gloucester, Wells, Hereford and Tewkesbury Abbey, have put together a virtual service of Choral Evensong, raising money for the Cathedral Choirs’ Emergency Fund. They hope this project will be the start of further regional collaboration, either digitally or physically when allowed, and wish to use this as a springboard to strengthen collaborative work.

 

The service was broadcast live on the 28th July at 6.30pm and you can listen to this beautiful service here.

 

A New Recording of the Ave Maria

John Hosking has written a new setting of the Ave Maria which has been recorded remotely during lockdown by Olivia Hunt (Soprano) and an orchestra. It will be released on 15th August and will help raise money for the Cathedral Choirs’ Emergency Fund.
