A NEW piece of choral music will be performed in Ely Cathedral by the City of London Sinfonia in May, when the orchestra will play alongside the cathedral choir and organist.
The new piece - Countless and wonderful are the ways to praise God - has been written by British composer Gabriel Jackson, whose choral works and liturgical pieces are in the repertoire of many of Britain’s leading choirs.
To help fund the new music, the Sinfonia has launched a crowd funding campaign called Gabriel’s Angels, aimed at raising £6,000.
The campaign invites people to invest in the new piece of choral music that will be performed to over 10,000 people across the country, by giving anything from £5 to £250.
Donors will also be able to track the progress of the commission online through a dedicated web page. Donations can be made online, by post or at City of London Sinfonia concerts.
