As a registered not-for-profit organisation run from a domestic home, we are not eligible for any Coronavirus business/charity support from the government: we are reliant on sponsorship from private individuals, churches, schools, and other organisations, to maintain our promise of work to our self-employed editors/typesetters and researchers. Donations can be made to Multitude of Voyces C.I.C. via Paypal (email@example.com) or directly to our bank account by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org . The directorship of the organisation continues through voluntary labour at this time.

Launch event led by Sarah MacDonald and the Choir of Selwyn College, Cambridge 17.11.2019 with some of the composers from all three volumes of our Anthology.
Front row: Olivia Sparkhall (editor and composer), Sarah MacDonald (Director of Music and composer), Louise Stewart, (Director, Multitude of Voyces). Second row, composers Gemma McGregor, Carol Jones, Kerensa Briggs, Janet Wheeler, Alison Willis, Helen Williams, Gail Randall.
The Choir of Selwyn College, Cambridge, (Dean of Chapel and Chaplain, Revd Canon Hugh Shilson-Thomas).
The Choir of St Martin's Church, Epsom is one of many church and cathedral choirs across the country and in the US, enjoying learning new repertoire from our first volume, including Helen Williams' work 'Great is your faithfulness'. (Helen is pictured front row right, nearest the altar).
Due to the wonderful response to our first volume we are now working on a volume of Advent/Christmas/Epiphany music, and we invite composers and music editors not already included within our Anthology series, to put forward recommendations and compositions for consideration. Music must be either for Upper Voices, SATB (or SSAATTBB, or SA+unison lower voices) or Lower Voices (eg. ATB, or TTBB). Submissions and recommendations can be sent to email@example.com. Works can be in any language and musical style but must be either unaccompanied or accompanied by an instrument in the keyboard family as appropriate.
