    As you know from our 2 emails (5 May and 11 May), as well as decreasingly optimistic messages in March & April, we have had to announce the sad news that we cannot hold the festival in France this summer.... and we are far from confident about Musique Cordiale in KENT IN NOVEMBER (to be confirmed).

You can choose what you want us to do with sums paid under the other headings below: participation, accommodation & dinners.

    We already have a record of your original membership, Friend and donation preferences for the people you booked for. (Of course, we invite anyone to upgrade to FRIEND membership or to make additional donations - and to complete a Gift Aid declaration if you are a UK taxpayer)

  • 2. Your choir participation(s)

    These are the funds originally payable to Musique Cordiale as your fee for participation in the 2020 Festival choir. You are entitled to FULL REIMBURSEMENT of this money for each of the people for whom you booked. However, as this is our only income for the year, we will be hugely grateful if you would consider rolling some or all of these payment over to the future. We can offer you a redeemable voucher for any amount that you are willing to have treated in this way. Alternatively, any amount can instead by turned into a DONATION to The Musique-Cordiale Trust with the option for us to claim Gift Aid and for some of you to treat it as tax-deductible
  • 3. Your accommodation

    If you booked and paid for accommodation, this is something that we have paid for from a hotel, chambre d'hotes (B&B) or home-owner who has let it to us for the purpose (this provides essential pensions or income in season for many local and second home-owners). We hope (in due course) to be reimbursed but some accommodation suppliers are offering us vouchers against future occupancy (as they have understandable cash-flow problems during the pandemic). You are ENTITLED TO FULL REIMBURSEMENT and we intend to refund all accommodation payments made to us unless you opt for a voucher instead or indicate that you wish to contribute the funds that you have paid as a donation (see above).
  • 4. Evening Meals with wine (Dinner packages)

    If you booked and paid for meals (either 8-night dinner packages or individual meals), you are ENTITLED TO FULL REFUNDS of payments made to us unless you opt for a voucher instead or indicate that you wish to contribute the funds that you have paid as a donation (see above).

  • This means that you do not decide yet, instead choosing that Musique Cordiale retains your funds and you continue as holder of the CREDIT NOTE that has been sent to you but retain the right, giving a months's notice or in answer to further questionnaires in the future, to decide later how or if it be spent, retained against future use, donated or repaid. This allows Musique Cordiale to retain the funds for essential cash-flow for the time being but you retain your rights to the funds. (Any funds left under terms of the credit note will be retained, used and repayable by Musique-Cordiale Services Ltd on behalf of the relevant Musique Cordiale organisation(s) (or the common festival, good name, goals or events) for which they were originally intended when you enrolled in the 2020 choir).
