Tudor and Tinsel

Where would a museum be without its supporters – which reminds me I’ve had an email from Jonno Davis who just happens to be Chair of the Holburne Museum Supporters.

He writes:

‘I’ve been enjoying your recent posts of many beautiful photographs, a great reminder of how lucky we are to live in this beautiful city with glorious countryside around us.

Good also to keep up to date with various happenings – I am equally pleased to see the Laura Place fountain being restored too, just a nice example of observing what is going on in Bath.

To that end, I thought your readers would be interested in a concert we have planned in aid of the Holburne Museum.

This time we have a festive theme, with music from the Tudor era, heralding not just Christmas, but also the forthcoming exhibition of Tudor portraits from the National Portrait Gallery, (opening on 28th January 2022).

We will have a performance from the Dowland Works choir, youthful but very talented singers, trained and mentored by Dame Emma Kirkby. They will sing music by William Byrd, Thomas Tallis and John Dowland, with their conductor Laurence Williams, and ably accompanied on the lute by Sam Brown. 

The concert will be in the beautiful setting of the Holburne’s Picture Gallery, on Saturday 4th December 2021 at 7:30pm. Tickets are £18 each, via the Holburne website:https://www.holburne.org/events/nowell-nowell-a-tudor-christmas/

Many thanks in advance if you could mention this concert, it would be wonderful to fill the room both with wonderful Christmas music and music lovers too.’
