In St Cuthbert’s Time – The Sounds of Lindisfarne and the Gospels

Leave a comment

In conjunction with the exhibition of the Lindisfarne Gospels in Durham (July to September 2013), the Institute of Advanced Study led a collaboration with world-leading sound recordist Chris Watson and scholars in archaeology and history/medieval studies, to create a unique sound installation that attempted to recreate the acoustic landscape of Lindisfarne at the time the Gospels were being written. The installation at Durham Cathedral’s Holy Cross Chapel coincided with the 3-month Gospels exhibition. A CD of the Chris’ composition is now available.
