Help the EAC make musical history!

Please can you help The English Arts Chorale make musical history, by donating to our recording project - we would like to record Paul Carr's beautiful Stabat Mater, together with other contemporary choral works, and need your help to make it happen.

On 19th January 2018 at 6.00 pm, The EAC's Crowdfunder site goes live and you will have the chance to participate in this piece of history, by pledging donations to enable the recording to take place. These pledges will earn a range of exciting rewards, from complimentary CDs of the recording, to invitations to a reception at the launch concert.
Paul Carr was commissioned by the EAC to write the Stabat Mater in 2017 and we premiered it with performances in Reigate and Cambridge in October 2017, on both occasions to standing ovations in the presence of the composer.  This is such a moving and exciting piece of music that we want to bring it to a wider audience and have decided that it deserves to be recorded.  Paul's works are already well known to listeners of Classic FM and we hope that our recording will attract similar attention.
Please visit our Crowdfunding page to make a donation.
