We are delighted to announce that Coventry Cathedral has received a grant from the Cathedral Choirs’ Emergency Fund in order to sustain our regular choral services into 2021.
The Cathedral Choirs’ Emergency Fund (CCEF) is an initiative of the Cathedral Music Trust, the Ouseley Church Music Trust and the Choir Schools Association. The aim has been to raise £1,000,000 with which to support the restoration of Choral Music in Cathedrals following the financial crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Initial payments were made earlier this year to sustain the Lay Clerks and Choral Scholars, with the Church Commissioners funding the 42 Anglican Cathedrals of England and the CCEF funding all of the other Cathedrals in Great Britain and Ireland.
We are so grateful to all those whose contributions have made this help possible – thank you!
