CURRENT EXHIBITION
Partbooks

THE WINCHESTER PARTBOOKS, 1564 - 66

This set of four musical manuscripts contains a selection of Italian and English madrigals and French chansons composed during the sixteenth century.  The bindings are decorated with the arms of Queen Elizabeth I, and were almost certainly a gift to her from King Erik XIV of Sweden, who commissioned them in Antwerp.  These rare and beautiful volumes have been described as ‘one of England’s musical treasures’.
