Tuesday 28 March 18.30 for 18.50 – 20:00
Viscount Chateaubriant writes in his 1522 memoirs that “Anne Boleyn, singing like a syren [and] accompanying herself on the lute …harped better than King David and handled cleverly both flute and rebec [fiddle]”.
Come and explore how Anne’s keen ability as a musician and composer influenced her role at court. Did it help her to silence her enemies and impress the king?
Speaker: Tamsin Lewis, musician, composer and historical consultant, with expertise in iconography and theatre music in early modern England. She plays the violin, viols, lute and harp.
