A TRUST has been set up to support and enhance funding for music at All Saints Church.

The church on the Causeway, Marlow, has a long-standing musical tradition, with a range of choirs for girls, boys, men and women, comprising all ages.

Clem Virgo, former Director of Music and Chairman of the Trust said at the official launch celebrations: "Support from the top, an able Director of Music with drive and charisma are essential prerequisites for success. We have those in place, but it is not enough.

"Adequate funding is vital too. The church council does its level best, but our needs are already running ahead of the contribution it is able to make, and that is exactly why we have set up the trust."

Current Director of Music, Martin Seymour, gave a demonstration of the wide repertoire currently sung by the choirs, after which tea was served at the Macdonald Compleat Angler Hotel by special invitation of Gaius Wyncoll, General Manager.

Guests included Marlow Mayor Jocelyn Towns, the Archdeacon of Buckingham, the Ven. Karen Gorham and the Director of the Royal School of Church Music, Andrew Reid.
