The Association has launched a fund raising appeal for the installation of recording equipment in the Cathedral to enable transmission of Services through a high quality podcast on the internet.
Having tested a system from ‘About Sound’, one of the market leaders in choral webcasting, who spent several hours recording Evensong in the Autumn, we are now hoping to raise £23,000 to make this a gift from the Old Choristers’ Association to the Cathedral. Examples of their system may be found by listening to podcasts from King’s College Chapel and St. John’s College Chapel, Cambridge.
A fund at ‘Stewardship’ (Stewardship Services (UKET) Limited) has been created and you can contribute online by credit or debit card either for a one off gift or several small pledge payments. You can access the STEWARDSHIP website at www.give.net/20214100
The advantage of using ‘Stewardship’ is that if you are a UK tax payer, for every £100 we receive from you, we receive another £25 via Gift Aid less a small administrative fee. If however you would prefer to send a cheque, please make it out to Rochester Cathedral Old Chorister’s Association and send to the Honorary Secretary marking the back “Podcast Appeal”.
