In Tune: A Millenium of Music in Trinity College Library
The Library’s music collections have been built up over the course of four centuries, and in their range and diversity reflect a thousand years of Irish and European musical history. In Tune - the winter exhibition in the Long Room - aims to reveal the richness of our music holdings by highlighting a selection of the most significant items, many of which are unique or extremely rare.
The related programme of lectures below took place during the course of the exhibition in association with the Trinity Long Room Hub.
