Collection Description

Collection Title
English Provinces: Cambridge: Trinity College (1877-1951)
A collection of 11 programmes and flyers from Trinity College, from 1877 to 1951.

The first item in the collection is a flier containing details of organ recitals given during Easter Term, 1877. The recitals were given by Dr. J. Bridge (from Westminster Abbey), C. Villiers Stanford and Mr. G.F. Cobb. A variety of music was played at the recitals, including music by Wagner – who the concert organisers felt the need to specify was "Richard Wagner, born in Leipzig, May 22nd, 1813".

The next item in the collection is a programme from a special Mozart commemoration held in the afternoon of 5 December 1891, in Trinity College Chapel. The programme includes analytical programme notes, as well as details of another commemoration concert held the same evening in Gonville and Caius College.

The remainder of the collection dates from 1920 to 1951. The collection includes programmes from concerts held in Neville's Court, the chapel and the hall. The collection includes programmes from concerts organised by Cambridge University Musical Club from 1920 to 1922. In addition, the collection includes a number of programmes from concerts given as part of the Festival of Britain (1951). These include performances by London-based orchestras and organ recitals.
