Join our Kickstarter campaign to record Jürg Frey’s sublime vocal music

7 June 2022

This year, in our 20th anniversary season, we have the opportunity to make an extremely special recording: the vocal music of Swiss composer Jürg Frey.

If you know of Jürg Frey’s music already, you’ll know the kind of transcendentally beautiful experience this will be: music of extreme stillness and calm, hovering on the edge of silence and requiring exceptional control and skill to achieve.

We first sang Jürg’s music in 2016 and he has been a fixture on our programmes since. A cult figure in the new music world, we are extremely lucky he has written a whole set of pieces specifically for us since then, including this magical piece, Out of Chorales.

We plan to record the album later this Summer for the Barcelona-based Neu Records.

We need to raise £5000 to do this – can you help us and pledge to our Kickstarter campaign?

As well as a copy or download of the finished CD itself there are plenty of other rewards on offer – free attendance at rehearsals, concerts, even free singing lessons!

This project is very special to us and we believe this recording could really make some waves – it’s stunning music, requiring no arcane knowledge to appreciate its beauty, and with a strong emotional impact.

We would be hugely grateful for your support in helping us reach our goal in this important year for us.
