August 17 at 13:00 – 14:00
A chance to see our current exhibition ‘Cantate Domino’ and ask questions of the curator, Mary Clayton-Kastenholz.
This inaugural exhibition for the Library’s new exhibition room celebrates musical treasures held in Lambeth Palace Library, placing better-known holdings alongside lesser-known volumes and fragments from the collections.
The exhibition features the Arundel Choirbook (one of the most important records of Tudor polyphonic music); Sion College’s illuminated York Breviary from the 15th century; and sermon notes pertinent to the composition of the hymn ‘Amazing Grace’ (celebrating its 250th anniversary this year). These are displayed alongside numerous other beautiful and interesting examples of music in the Library’s collections found in a variety of forms and spanning the 11th to 20th centuries.
All are welcome but those wishing to attend should book tickets via Eventbrite or email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 16 August
