Past Exhibitions

March-June 2015: Through a glass, darkly: Breckland's Hidden Churches, an exhibition featuring Michael Rimmer's photographs of the four medieval churches in the Stanford Battle Area, Norfolk, closed to the public since 1942. Hungate Medieval Arts, Norwich.

"The medieval Breckland churches of Stanford, Tottington, West Tofts and Langford have been largely inaccessible to the public for over 70 years. They sit in a tract of land which was requisitioned by the Army for military training in 1942, and which has been used for live fire exercises ever since. 

Each of the four churches is different, each hugely atmospheric, and each represents a different period of English church architecture. 

Michael Rimmer, the amazing local photographer who worked with us on the Heaven In the Rafters exhibition in 2013, has been granted access to take new high quality photographs of these special places, so that you can explore them virtually."

June-September 2013: Heaven in the Rafters, an exhibition of Michael Rimmer's angel roof photographs at Hungate Medieval Arts, Norwich

May 2014 Vigilate! A CD by the Monteverdi Choir & Sir John Eliot Gardiner 

The CD cover and liner featured photographs from The Angel Roofs of East Anglia

Vigilate! English polyphony in dangerous times: "This album brings together six English composers whose combined careers span more than a century - Byrd, Tallis, Morley, Philips, White and Tomkins. The title Vigilate! (Be watchful!) epitomises the clandestine character of recusant music-making in Elizabethan England, by undercover Catholic composers of the time. The pieces on this recording display the richly imaginative, devout and diverse responses of musical craftsmen who worked with unfailing creativity in difficult times."
