Terms and Conditions

Delivery times for physical CDs and sheet music

We (The King’s Consort, through our charitable foundation Vivat Music Foundation) endeavour to send out physical CDs within 24 hours of receipt of an order, and sheet music within 72 hours, but our guarantee is to send all materials within seven working days of the order having been successfully received and fully paid. UK orders are sent by first class post: those for Europe and the Rest of World are sent by airmail, unless rapid courier delivery is selected. We cannot be held responsible for delays caused by the postal service in any country. We have, for instance, been advised of significant delays for packets entering the USA and particularly recommend using our courier service for that country. Goods sent by standard mail cannot be tracked. If you require your order to be tracked, please select courier delivery.

Cancelling an order

Customers are entitled to cancel the purchase of any physical item within 14 days of delivery. Please return the items within 14 days of their delivery to you: they must be securely packaged. Please ensure that all items remain unopened, are sealed, and are in good condition. Please also enclose the delivery note that was enclosed with your order, and include your name, postal address and email. We recommend that you use recorded delivery. Vivat will reimburse the purchase price paid for cancelled orders or returns within 10 working days of receipt of returned goods when accompanied by the delivery note and reasons for return. For physical goods which have been ordered by you and over which you change your mind within the 14 day period stated above we will refund only the original purchase cost and not any postage or other costs.

Defective goods

If a CD or sheet music is defective in any respect we will accept return of an opened item provided it is accompanied by a note detailing in what respect you believe it to be deficient. We recommend that you first try a faulty CD in a different player before returning it. Please let us know at what point (track number, time on that track, etc) the fault occurs. If a CD is defective, you do not need to return the case or booklet, just the CD. If the booklet is defective, please do not return it: instead please email us using the contact form on this site and describe the problem. We will post you a new booklet: please remember to include your postal address. Vivat will additionally refund the cost of postage by standard mail if a CD purchased from, and returned to, Vivat is returned due to any error on our part or if the product is agreed by Vivat to be defective. If sheet music is defective, please let us know in what way it is so that we can correct the error.

Return address

Please ensure as above that you outline in writing the reason for the return, and enclose the delivery note that was enclosed with the goods. Carefully and securely wrap the goods and send to:
Vivat Music Foundation, The Old Rectory, Alpheton, Suffolk CO10 9BT, United Kingdom.
