Scope and content

Prince Charles is patron of Music in Country Churches and as such is a very active supporter. This picture was taken by Sally Proctor.

Music in Country Churches was celebrating its 23rd season in 2011. It is a charitable trust set up in 1989 with the active support of The Prince of Wales. The trust has two aims: to arrange weekends of music in rural churches of exceptional beauty and interest and to raise funds thereby to assist those churches with the costs of their repair and maintenance.

These weekends, at which the concerts are given by artists of international renown, take place during the summer months and in various parts of the country.

The Trust, apart from the need to cover the modest cost of part-time secretarial help, is run entirely on a voluntary basis. In its first 22 seasons it arranged 61 weekends and with the support of business organisations, charitable trusts, the Friend of Music in Country Churches and other generous individuals, was able to make donations to those churches totalling £427,000.

The vicar of St. Mary's Rev David Lloyd can be seen in the background.
