Anne Boleyn's Music Book

Event Date: 
24 Sep 2017

This event celebrates one of the RCM’s greatest treasures, the ‘Anne Boleyn Music Book’, which is one of the most significant books of Renaissance music in Britain. The book contains what appears to be the authentic signature of Anne Boleyn, who may have acquired it while serving as a maid of honour in the household of Margaret of Austria, with whom she moved to live at the French court when Margaret married Louis XII. It was acquired by the Royal College of Music at its foundation in 1883, when the book was part of the vast collection of about 5,000 volumes of music acquired from the recently disbanded Sacred Harmonic Society. The book is modest in size (about the size of a paperback book), beautifully hand-written, and contains music by some of Europe’s most famous composers. It has recently been disassembled, restored and rebound, allowing far-reaching new research to be carried out through examination of its paper, decorations and scribal hands and for fresh research on its musical contents; a magnificent facsimile edition, complete with scholarly essays and detailed critical apparatus is also currently in production.

Event Date:

The Society for Renaissance Studies is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a series of lectures in Ireland and the UK in early September, on the theme of the five senses.
