An evening of nostalgia, wonderment and silliness

In the film industry’s silent era, many films of both verve and variety were made that adapted Shakespeare’s plays for popular audiences. Come and sample these rare, surviving old films in an evening that takes us an engaging tour of some fascinating, touching and entertaining Shakespearean moments from early film history. The evening will be animated by some wonderful live music, by performance interjections from live actors and by lively commentary from Judith Buchanan.

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.
