THE Military Wives Choirs charity hopes to release an album to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War 1 – but needs support to make it happen.
Through the site Pledge Music, choir members are asking the public to pre-order the album now to allow them to get into the recording studio early next year.
The commemorative release will feature four brand new songs written especially for the Military Wives Choirs by composers in the pop, film and classical worlds around the themes of remembrance, patriotism and military life, as well as music from past and present referencing World War 1 marching songs and iconic service marches.
Anita, a member of Colchester Military Wives Choir, said: “Most of us understand how difficult it is to say goodbye to someone in the Forces, whether the person is going to a war zone or not.
“It is this unique perspective which means that we can do something very powerful with music, which is a medium that speaks far louder than words. However, we need the support of the public if we are going to make this a reality. Please help us to remember them by visiting our Pledge Music page and pre-ordering this incredibly important album now.”
