Hereford Cathedral Library present Sounds Divine – An Exhibition celebrating 750 years of Music at Hereford Cathedral

Sounds Divine features artefacts and documents which explore the people who have helped to fill the cathedral with wonderful music throughout the centuries including original manuscripts of works by Sir Edward Elgar, Samuel Sebastian Wesley and Dame Ethel Smyth. The Hereford Breviary, a unique medieval manuscript which records how the daily round of services was sung at the cathedral in the Middle Ages, will also form a key part of the exhibition.

Hereford Cathedral Library and Archives present a wide variety of changing exhibitions and displays throughout the year, drawing from the extensive collections which the cathedral holds. Exhibitions feature manuscripts and early printed books, archive documents, artefacts and loan items.

This exhibition will take place within the Mappa Mundi and Chained Library exhibition and entry is included within the Mappa Mundi ticket price. The exhibition is open Monday to Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm.
