What to expect Stand in the extraordinary medieval crypt at St Edmund Hall, and hear music from 15th century illuminated manuscripts from the Bodleian Library, with facsimiles on display.

Hear, see and explore the stunning Goostly psalmes and spirituall songes by William Coverdale (1488-1568), a treasure of The Queen’s College, in the College Chapel. An unmissable step back in time as we highlight musical manuscripts as artworks.
