Tudor Music - Tower of London - January 2018

I performed on the cornetto and natural trumpet for a murder mystery corporate function at the Tower of London on Thursday 11th January 2018.

Performing firstly in the White Tower and later in the New Armouries, Sam Goble, Russell Gilmour, Nick Perry and Jamie Akers performed Tudor Music, wearing appropriate costume (provided), upon cornetti, natural trumpets, pipes, recorder, curtal, guitar, hurdy gurdy, and pipe and tabor.

Although I have seen the Tower of London many times from beyond the perimeter walls, this was the first occasion that I had set foot inside the grounds. I did not get chance to see the Crown Jewels or (more importantly) the silver trumpets therewith - but I will return, at some point, with this aim.
