• Sing Forever In aid of the Cathedral Choirs' Emergency Fund

Welcome to the Sing Forever information page

Here you will find further information about Friends of Cathedral Music’s Sing Forever project.

The aim of the project is to raise funds for the Cathedral Choirs’ Emergency Fund. The fund aims to raise £1,000,000 to help cathedral choirs affected by the Covid-19 national lockdown.

The project is managed by FCM in partnership with Norwich Cathedral.  It involves recording a video of Sing Forever by Robert Prizeman (specially arranged for this project by Ashley Grote).

Cathedral choristers are warmly invited to take part and will be joined by some other celebrity guests.

If you wish to take part, this is what you need to do:

1. You must have permission from your parent/guardian to submit your video. Your parents should read our safeguarding guidelines before completing the form. Please ask your parent to complete and submit this form before you submit your video. We cannot include your contribution in the video if you have not submitted a form.

2. Download a copy of the notated music. You can choose either the voice parts on their own or the score with accompaniment.

3. Practise singing along to the backing track (see below).

4. Before you record your video, read these instructions very carefully.

5. Make a recording of your video, following all the instructions. We will not be able to include your video if the instructions are not correctly followed.

6. Submit your video via WeTransfer to the email address in the instruction document. This must be submitted from your parent/guardian’s email address.

You must submit your video by 3rd July 2020. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to include late submissions

We will let you know when the video is published – please ask your parents to share it with friends and family.
