Beethoven’s songs are perhaps the least familiar of his output yet he wrote over 170 folksong settings, mostly in English, and almost 100 lieder including what is regarded as the first song cycle: An die Ferne Geliebte. The lieder communicate his innermost feelings and as they seem not to have been performed in public during his lifetime were part of his private output. To this remarkable repertoire, Joshua Ellicott brings an outstanding ability to communicate texts which with his lyric tenor voice makes him an ideal interpreter of this most personal music, here complemented by the expressive sound of the fortepiano.

We can't go out so we're not spending money on things like coffee and cakes, glass of wine or beer, and generally eating out and socialising.
Why not pop the money you’ve saved on some of these things into a jar and put it towards the Raise the Roof appeal. If we ask friends and family to do the same we could raise a reasonable amount of money for the appeal.
Even if we only put a couple of pounds a week away it would all add up. What do you think - shall we give it a go? It would be great if once our wonderful theatre can reopen we have lots of jars of money to hand over!
