For a Tyme Lost – event at Gressenhall Church on Saturday 10th March – 7.30pm

Bridget Yates has asked us to publicise a forthcoming event in Gressenhall Church which she thinks will be of interest to some MNFHS members.
The evening includes a talk on music in the church from the building of a West Gallery by Robert Halcott in 1635, through to the installation of an organ in 1911. During the nineteenth century there was a church band, mainly members of the extensive Tye family, and some of their instruments, which are now in Strangers’ Hall Museum, will be on display for ‘one night only’. The talk will be illustrated by The Gressenhall Singers and a band of local musicians using the early 19th century ‘Gressenhall Tune Book’. The Gressenhall Ringers will be welcoming the audience with 17th century ringing on five bells.
