Help us to end homelessness

Throughout the year, the London Philharmonic Choir has been asking choir’s around the UK to support homeless charity Crisis by performing a new carol, Ring the Bells by Paul Fincham.

Ring the Bells was commissioned by the London Philharmonic Choir and premiered at the Royal Albert Hall in 2017.  The score is now available from publisher Boosey & Hawkes and the composer is donating his royalties to Crisis so every performance will contribute towards the charity’s plan to end homelessness.

We are delighted to have more than 50 choirs performing Ring the Bells in cities, towns and villages from Alloa to Truro, as well as overseas.  By purchasing the score, these choirs have all supported Crisis.  Read more about the project in the autumn issue of the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Tune In newsletter.
