Owing to the current pandemic, all of our planned fundraising events have been cancelled. This leaves the continuing existence of the Davey Consort, and the future of the Aubertin organ we have commissioned for St Birinus, in peril.

Thanks to the generosity of many individuals and several charitable organisations, we have so far raised £170,000 towards the cost of the Aubertin organ. However, £160,000 remains to be found before the instrument can be completed and installed. Needless to say, the organ is crucial in enabling us to achieve our aims. Without it, we cannot establish scholarships. And without scholarships, here or elsewhere (and “elsewheres” are quickly disappearing), the future of the Catholic musical tradition we represent is in very real danger of dying out.

Please help us to keep this great and important tradition alive for generations to come!
