We are especially grateful to Sarah MacDonald, Director of the Choir of Selwyn College, Cambridge, (and Director of the Girls Choir at Ely Cathedral) for Selwyn College's wonderful support of our project. Volume 1 was launched on November 17th at Selwyn College, with a special service of Choral Evensong, and a concert and dinner. We are delighted to have developed this association with Selwyn College through Sarah's generous affirmation of our Anthology series; the complete Volume 1 will be recorded by her Choir in January 2021. Pictured are several of our composers including Gemma McGregor, Carol Jones, Kerensa Briggs, Janet Wheeler, Olivia Sparkhall, Alison Willis, Sarah MacDonald, Helen Williams and Gail Randall.
