Initial target surpassed, "stretch target" now operating!

Once again, a big thank you to all the donors who so generously got us to our target within four days of the campaign going live! We are hugely grateful, and we so look forward to being able to send you the results in September, along with other rewards. It is most encouraging to know that so many people feel strongly enough about our music to want to support it substantially in this way.

We wanted to give you a word of explanation regarding the "stretch target" which is now in operation. When we built this campaign web page, we were asked by the Crowdfunder system to name a figure to aim for, should we reach our initial target. We considered the overall cost of making this CD (about £9000 altogether), and decided that it would be sensible to aim for something close to half or two thirds of that total as our stretch target. We certainly didn't expect to reach our intial target so quickly, if at all!

The donations received so far are a tremendous help, and any further donations will help us to defray the overall cost of the project, and will enable us to do a bit more on the promotion and advertising front than would otherwise have been possible.

Many thanks to you all from Susanna and Jacob (Pellingmans' Saraband)
