We are immensely grateful to all who have enabled us to reach our target of £5,000. Inevitably, in a project as large as this, involving over 24 musicians and a cost originally estimated at well over £30,000, more costs creep in along the way. Some were never included in the first place, in order to keep the overall figure down, some were simply not foreseen. Furthermore, there will be more expenditure involved in getting the CD lanched and publicised, which we don't yet know. In the last resort, I am underwriting it all myself, because I am passionate about Gibbons' music (this is Bill Hunt speaking here - this project was my idea!) If I may be allowed to ask for your help, by setting this stretch target, I'd be personally very grateful to you! Any unused surplus will be going towards the next project in what I hope will be a three-part series: the early verse anthem repertoire, including music by Morley, Byrd and Bull. There is plenty more magnificent music to look forward to.
