The Michael Tippett Music Foundation has announced that it has changed its grant-making policy, stating that:

 “We are a small Foundation with funds from the royalties generated by performances, broadcasts and publication of the works of composer Michael Tippett (1905-1998).

“Receipts from Tippett royalties have decreased significantly due to the loss of performances during the Covid pandemic. For 2023 the Trustees have decided to focus the Foundation’s activity exclusively on the funding of performances and recording of music by Michael Tippett, with the aim of generating greater revenue for a wider range of activities in future years.“
