Beverley Minster


Join us and enter the opulent world of the 16th century through the eyes of Petrus Alamire – musical scribe, composer, singer and producer of some of the most decorated illustrated choirbooks in history. Collected together by the
Alamire Foundation, the music manuscripts are represented in high quality, scaled images.

Meet rulers, composers and musicians, and experience the arts and the worldview of the time brought to life through these extraordinary beautiful

Visitors are also invited into the media-installation 'Speculum Musurgica' by the Belgian contemporary artist Rudi Knoops to hear the music so artfully illustrated. Roll back 500 years and enter the sound world of Alamire as you get
"up-close and personal" with the musicians at work.

This exhibition was first mounted in Antwerp Cathedral by the Alamire Foundation, International Centre for the Study of Music in the Low
Countries and AMUZ, Flanders Festival-Antwerp (Belgium), and will travel internationally - starting in 2017 at Beverley Minster.
