Ever wondered about the history of church music?  Come & find out, Friday 13th October 2017

We are so excited to be participating in Secret Libraries Week for a programme of free talks, displays and tours.  Dr John Henderson will be giving a talk on ‘The RSCM Colles Library Aged Four Score Years and Ten’ at 2.30pm on Friday 13th October 2017.

Dr Henderson will talk about the history of the RSCM and it’s library, illustrated with some fascinating recordings.  The display will include some Royal memorabilia, pictures and manuscripts relating to Sir Sydney Nicholson, manuscripts of Sir Charles Stanford, Sir Walter Alcock and other library treasures including a facsimile of Handel’s Messiah.

There will also be the opportunity to purchase music and books…..all in all it should be a cracker of a day. 

Free tickets are available from Sarum College Library by telephoning 01722 424803 or by emailing library@sarum.ac.uk.
