Spring Tea & Champagne Gala Fundraiser with author Catherine Clover
Is there anything nicer than a cup of tea (or a glass of champagne?) in the afternoon? Why yes! - enjoying that beverage with conversation and a reading from her best-selling book by internationally-renowned author Catherine Clover!
Catherines interest in medieval history began at the age of 8 when she was given her first book on medieval knights and castles. From that young age, she was keen to learn more about castles and the lives of those who lived in and around them. This passion led her to complete her doctoral degree from Trinity College, Oxford, on the fortifications of English Gascony at the end of the Hundred Years War, and subsequently gave root to the creation of The Chronicles of Divine Love trilogy, of which her recently published The Templars Garden is the first in the series.
There is an accompanying CD to her book, Like as the Hart - Music for The Templar's Garden, a compilation of settings of Psalm 42 (Like as the hart desireth the waterbrooks so longeth my soul after thee, O God) produced by Catherine and sung by the Choir of New College Oxford, under the direction of Robert Quinney. Composers on the recording include Ockeghem, Palestrina, Tallis, Tavener, Schütz, Buxtehude, Handel, and Howells. The albums first release was on the Novum record label and it remained in the UK Specialist Classical Music chart for 13 weeks after its release in June 2017.
Seating for this event is limited so early pre-purchase of your admission is strongly suggested.
