Rutland Boughton - centenary of the Glastonbury festivals

Rutland Boughton
2014 is the centenary of the founding of the original festival at Glastonbury by the composer Rutland Boughton. At his Glastonbury festivals Boughton had mounted over 350 staged works; 100 chamber concerts, a number of exhibitions and series of lectures and recitals. The Rutland Boughton Music Trust plans to celebrate this. 

There will be a festival at the Assembly Rooms in Glastonbury in August 2014 and, if funds are found, a new recording of Boughton's music including Reunion Variations, the overture to The Queen of Cornwall and/or the overture to the Cycle of Arthurian Music Dramas. The Rutland Boughton Music Trust is appealing for funds to help support these activities, further information from their webpages.
