Gift Ideas for Singers
A selection of thoughtful gift items for the special singers in your life.
Christmas Carol Accompaniments: direct to you on CD
We're currently inviting pre-orders for our Christmas accompaniments CDs - a collection of favourite Christmas carols, delivered direct to you or your loved one on an audio CD for just £14.99 GBP.
We'll even gift wrap it for you if you ask us to!
It's a great gift: ideal for schools and colleges, family get-togethers and carol singing.
Your Accompanist Gift Vouchers
Beautifully presented in PDF format, our gift vouchers start at 5 tracks, and are perfect stocking fillers for the special singers in your life.
20 and 50 track vouchers will be split across a number of codes so that they don't have to be spent all at once. Please allow 24 hours for the voucher to be emailed to you.
Sound asleep pillow
Anyone who's ever tried using headphones in bed on will know it doesn't make for particularly restful dozing.
We found this great gadget for singers, students and music lovers alike: a pillow with a built in speaker that connects directly to an MP3 player - absolutely ideal for anyone who's familiarising themselves with the accompaniment or vocal line of a song. What a great idea!
We think this little something for the bedroom would make the perfect valentines gift for the special singer or music lover in your life (along with an accompaniment MP3 Gift Voucher, of course).

Berkshire Choral Festival
Based in Massechusets and locations across the USA, and Europe, the Berkshire Choral Festival was founded in 1982 to provide choral singers with the opportunity to rehearse and perform masterpieces of the choral repertoire under the direction of world-class conductors and with the help of a professional musical staff. An experience to cherish for ever.
