The Macclesfield Psalter was purchased by the Fitzwilliam Museum in February 2005.
"We are absolutely delighted by the outcome of our efforts to acquire the Macclesfield Psalter. The public response to the appeal to save for the nation this gem of our medieval heritage has been overwhelming. At the same time, we wish to acknowledge the enthusiastic support of both the National Art Collections Fund and the National Heritage Memorial Fund which was crucial to the success of the campaign.”
