We celebrate the completion of our 5-CD series Music from the Peterhouse Partbooks in grand style with a gorgeous program of highlights from this treasurehouse of music, a set of partbooks copied around 1540 for Canterbury Cathedral. We are thrilled and deeply honored to be joined for the occasion by Nick Sandon, the world’s leading expert on the Peterhouse partbooks and the restorer of their missing parts, without whose astonishing and utterly persuasive recomposition of missing lines (principally the tenor, whose partbook was lost centuries ago) none of the unique Peterhouse music could be sung in modern times.


Doors open at 7 PM / Pre-concert talk begins at 7:15 PM

Pre-concert talk by Nick Sandon (University of Exeter, retired)
