Unlike many ancient cathedrals, Lincoln has no historic endowment to support its choir and organ music.

In 1993 the Lincoln Cathedral Music Fund (Reg Charity No 1033089) was set up to help preserve Lincoln's excellent music tradition.

The annual cost of running and maintaining the instruments is considerable, but with the support that is received from those who love the music of the Cathedral, from various Trusts and with the hard work and dedication of our Music Fund volunteers in creating and running events, funds are raised to help keep the music alive in the Cathedral.

Not a single year has passed, in the last 80, in which the society has not brought live classical music to the people of Louth and the surrounding villages. Even during the two year pandemic we managed it, if only by a hair's breadth!
The objects of LDCS are somewhat formally phrased in its 1940s-sounding constitution but - put more simply - it is to entertain through concerts that embrace the whole spectrum of classical music:
Elizabethan via Baroque to the Romantic and Modern; and take in just about every instrument (including the wonderful human one of song) ever invented - piano; string; woodwind and brass, and (something of a innovation) electronic.
We endeavour to cater for every taste and age group. We can offer complimentary tickets to young people. We are serious but not solemn and we hope twe project a friendly image. Come along - meet people and mix, discuss likes and dislikes and hear great music.
And, if you want to ensure that LDCS can continue to do all this, you can assist as well. We welcome help and participation.
