Lancaster Singers perform Allegri’s Miserere

Lancaster Singers perform Allegri’s Miserere for the Nepal earthquake appeal 11th May 2015

Choir member Katharine Howell asked if anyone was prepared to take part in a recording of Allegri’s Miserere to raise funds for the DEC Nepal earthquake appeal. There was a good response and members of Lancaster Singers assembled in St Peter’s Cathedral on May 11th to make a recording to sell for the appeal. Katharine says:

This time last year I was living in the lowlands of Nepal, by day measuring rice leaves for my Master's fieldwork and by night eating and dancing with the wonderful community I was living in. Nepal is a special place for me: it's where my parents met, as volunteers in the eighties, it's where we lived for part of my childhood and a place I keep coming up with research-based excuses to visit. Already a desperately poor country, Nepal has been devastated by the earthquake which hit it on 25th April, and its recovery will take a lot of time and support.

The wonderful choir I sing with, Lancaster Singers, have kindly agreed to record our rendition of Allegri's beautiful Miserere as a charity single in aid of the DEC Nepal Earthquake Appeal. It will be available soon for you to download in exchange for a donation. In the meantime, please feel free to give generously to the appeal, and in the words of my friends in Nepal (fortunately all safe): 'pray for Nepal' - and sing too!
