We can report that through the beneficence of a particularly generous donor we have raised a large percentage of what we need to do the recording. We are still finalising the exact details of how and when but we are thrilled that we will be able to go ahead this year and produce a recording worthy of Clive’s music. A massive thanks to all who have donated so far!
Our Recording Project
As we celebrate our 10th anniversary this year we would like to realise a long held ambition to record some music. And what could be more suitable than to record the wonderful choral music written by renowned local composer Clive Osgood. We would like to help raise Clive’s profile as a composer and enable his music to become more widely known.
Known to those in Haslemere as the organist at St Bartholomew’s Church and as accompanist for the HMS choir, Clive’s career in composition is burgeoning apace. He has had many commissions over the years – his most recent one is the music for Imagine That Production’s original production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream due to be premiered at St Christopher’s Church, Haslemere in May 2017.
Clive has also had wider recognition having won a 2006 BBC Radio 4 competition with his anthem ‘Do Not Fear O Soil’. More recently in December 2016 he was one of six finalists in the hugely competitive BBC Radio 3 Carol Competition with ‘Alleluia! A new work is come on hand’, here sung by the BBC Singers.
The production of a top quality recording which properly showcases Clive’s incredible talents will be expensive and we really need your help to support this exciting venture! Please see the downloadable sponsorship form for full details. There is a General Option for any amount you care to give, a special section if you wish to give ‘In Memoriam’ – in memory of a loved one – as well as specific options for defined aspects of the recording costs.
Details of how to pay as well as levels of contribution are contained in the downloadable sponsorship form.
