FREE ADMISSION

Iken Scholars, programme curated by Nerissa Taysom

To complement COLOUR, join the Iken Scholars for a meditative day of medieval and Renaissance music sung live across the museum galleries. Marking the passage of time and place across the exhibition, these short performances will coincide with the monastic hours of the day from Invitatory at 12 noon to Compline at 19.30. The programme will draw on musical references in the exhibition, from 14th Italian hymns and English antiphons, to polyphony composed for cathedrals, courts and Kings.

This event forms part of Late at the Museum.
