Music In The State Chamber (MISC) – Chanting, Hunting and Parlour Songs: Music for Chapter House and State Chamber

David Machell (baritone and piano), Yvonne Gerrard (soprano and flute) and Katharine Dryden (mezzo-soprano) present a programme charting the history of music making at the Minster. They begin with some remarkable musical graffiti found in our Chapter House, before performing some hunting songs, reflecting the Archbishop’s Palace’s status as a popular royal hunting venue. They finish with exploring the re-emergence of music making in the Edwardian period, with songs and parlour songs, including three of Edward Elgar’s Sea Pictures.

Starts 7.30pm | Refreshments from 7pm
