    Dear Sebastien,

    I am the publicity officer for Finchley Choral Society, a community choir in N. London UK.
    http://www.finchleychoral.org.uk
    We are singing Carmina Burana in June, and I came across the beautiful image of the Bass Cleff and the Ear
    as a poster for Carmina Burana on Google images.
    The FCS logo is a bass cleff, and I am writing to ask permission to use the image on the poster for our concert.
    We are a registered charity and a small non-profit making community choir.
    I would credit Armin Hofmann prominently on the poster.

    The original image was on Adrios blog. I emailed him and he said the image was by Armin Hofmann.
    I am contacting you to see if I can get in touch directly with Armin Hofmann.

    In hope and with best wishes

    Andrew Palmer.
