Ceremony and Battle

Hertford House is home to one of the world’s finest collections of arms and armour, and tonight we take the opportunity to explore it through the music of ceremony and battle. Fanfare music for brass quintet and percussion takes us through the splendour of Sovereign Ceremonies, the drama of music in battle, a pistol duel, and dynamic selections of music from Richard III.
