Look at ``collective.singing.browser.subscribe.Subscribe.finish``.

You can ignore the first part about collecting ``collector_data`` and
``composer_data``, as you'll provide your own form data there.  These
are simply dictionaries.  There's also ``metadata`` containing
``format``, ``date``, and ``pending``.

Towards the end of the method, you can see how a confirmation message is
sent out.

Regarding e-mail validation: You'd probably want your form to do this.
For this, you can reuse the ``collective.dancing.composer.check_email``
constraint in your form's schema.
