From Holbein to Byrd: The Art & Music of the Tudor Century 

01/10/2022 @ 10:15 - 13:30


We’re delighted to welcome Mark Cottle back to Morrab Library for his brilliant workshop From Holbein to Byrd: The Art and Music of the Tudor Century.

The long anticipated workshop – which we had to postpone it in 2020 due to Covid19 – will now take place at Morrab Library on Saturday 1st October from 10.15am – 1.30pm.

Behind the Tudors and their turbulent century, a great cultural awakening arose, transforming the medieval world it replaced. In this half day class, based on illustrated lectures and course files, aims to capture something of the depth, breadth and vitality of a century discovering New Worlds, as much cultural as geographical. It will explore the art and music of the Tudor period via Holbein’s paintings, the miniatures of Hilliard and Oliver and music by the Madrigalists.

Tickets are £12.50 per person – cash only  – advance payment and booking is essential. Unlike our library talks, places to this workshop will not be allocated via a ballot system and we expect it will be very popular so please email enquiries@morrablibrary.org.uk or call 01736 364474 to book your place as soon as you can. Refreshments will be included in the ticket price.
