Three Choirs Festival 

The Radcliffe Trusts grant to Three Choirs has consolidated Three Choirs reputation for furthering their repertory of music. The festival continues to support aspiring young musicians, pre-professional players and composers writing the music of the 21st century; as it was in the 20th century commissioning Vaughan Williams, Elgar, Howells and Finzi to name a few.

A festival highlight was the Three Choirs Festival commission for a new work by composer Luke Styles for youth chorus and orchestra, and the grant from Radcliffe Trust made an essential contribution towards the funds necessary to pay for this world premiere performance in Hereford Cathedral.
