Medical notes

An evening of medieval melodic delights from the RCP's historical collection, and physicians in folk song


The RCP has a number of medieval music fragments, retrieved in the 20th century from bindings from the rare book and manuscript collections. This evening will explore why such material ended up as printers' scrap, and include performances of some of the reclaimed music.

The evening will also look at the depiction of doctors and medicine in folk songs. There will be live performances of some of these, along with some lyrics found in a 17-18th century manuscript receipt book.
