We've extended your chance to own Canadian choral history as Amabile Choirs of London, Canada releases, "Sing Your Song" - 16 great new choral works including tributes to Amabile co-founder John Barron, and long-time conductor Ken Fleet.

It's your last chance to support production of a piece of Canadian history as the Amabile Choirs of London, Canada's six touring choirs have recorded and will release 16 amazing works, including pieces in tribute to Amabile co-founder John Barron, and long-time conductor Ken Fleet.

The recording will be available in both regualr CD and 5.1 surround sound Pure Audio Blu Ray!

We've extended the campaign for one final as we need your help going forward with this significant project. We are in the editing of the session right now, and once the mastering of the recording is completed this summer by recording engineer, Geoff Warder, we’ll share one of the tracks with all of our champions. There are a variety of other Perks to acknowledge the generous support of our champions at different levels of support - and with each perk, the donor receives a Canadian income tax-deductible receipt.

This 100% Canadian recording will be released on the Canadian Music Centre label, Centrediscs, in January to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday!

All of the works are by renowned Canadian composer and former Amabile Choirs’ Composer-in-Residence, Matthew Emery. His music has been published by no fewer than a dozen international publishing houses and later this spring, Matthew has several premiers across North America: from Calgary, Kingston to, Vermont to Virginia and special premiere at the White House in Washington D.C.

From the composer: "The CD representing a complete journey from chorister to professional, singer to composer; moments of clarity and connection within the choir - commissioning works, premiering works, works in memory of John and music inspired deeply by Ken. The idea that there is beauty in the ordinary or the everyday is something that I try to capture in my music."

Emery’s choral music is evocative of varied moods, experiences, influences from across Canada the world, and heartfelt melodies. You won’t want to miss being a part of this opportunity.
