"Well done to all those who came along on Saturday for the 'Big Sing. We achieved our goal of going through the complete repertoire of 22 songs with their harmonies. What fine voices you have. It is wonderful to think so many of you came and want to continue singing these songs at festivals and events, as well as among yourselves. Chris, Emily and myself had no idea the South Downs Songs Project would prove to be so successful.
Finally, we would just like to say 'thank you' to the South Downs Society for paying for our time on Saturday. Originally, we were going to ask everyone to pay £5 to cover our costs and photocopying expenses, but the SDS kindly offered to pay these. They have also donated funds towards the cost of producing a publicity leaflet for the SDFS and will be providing 100 copies of the final CD for you to sell at events, for a possible £10 a time. We are very grateful to the SDS for their continued support."
