This website is now completely independent of the Les Amis website.
Read on for some of the background and reasons as why two websites and the basic reason Members have to logon.
Originally I had hoped that the Chorale members and Les Amis would use a common website but the plan was not need User accounts and logins.
Jean Loader asked that all the MP3 and sheet music be kept private and secure to protect Anke’s work from being stolen and used with the appropriate royalties being paid.
This meant the first website designn had to be very complex, in order to meet jeans security and access requirements, huge amounts of content and user protection.
However even before the website was fully built and no wahere near ready for the Les Amis and its members. Hackers attempted steal contentt from the website.
