Music and Manuscript

Whilst Chetham’s Library doesn’t specialise in music, it does have quite large holdings of music. These range from liturgical pieces from the fifteenth-century to late nineteenth-century folk songs and ballads, and includes a wealth of seventeenth and eighteenth-century material, including pieces by Purcell, Handel, Blow and Eccles. 

This event provides an opportunity to hear some of the music contained in the historic Library and to visit the Library to see an exhibition of some of its musical treasures.
