Singing the Lord's song: Music, art, and faith in 16th-century Europe

500th anniversary of the Reformation:

Monday 27 November, 1–1.45pm

Sainsbury Wing Theatre

Andrew Carwood

Admission free, donations welcome 

The 16th century in Europe was a time of political and religious upheaval but also astonishing artistic growth.

Andrew Carwood, Director of Music at St Paul's Cathedral, London, looks at the relationship between music, art and faith at a time when the continent was violently divided along religious lines. How was art and music used for devotion and propaganda and to express the various reformations which took place?

Andrew Carwood is Director of Music at Saint Paul's Cathedral, London. He is a singer and conductor and director of his own group, The Cardinall's Musick.
