Literary Music bring alive the music of the past with entertaining programmes inspired by the lives and works of Jane Austen and others of our best loved authors

Literary Music

“Literary Music is a title after my own heart. It is a pleasure to think of programmes built around the works of our most beloved authors and designed for the venues they knew.

They will bring to the enterprise lovely sounds, historical awareness, and enthusiasm, giving fresh life to words and music.”
Dame Emma Kirkby

Literary Music is an inspirational group of young professional Classical musicians performing programmes inspired by the lives and works of some of our best loved authors.

Led by soprano Rosie Lomas the group brings alive the music of literature; from the drawing rooms of the Regency era and fashionable concerts of Georgian Bath to the factories of the industrial Victorian cities, performing songs and arias of the period with quotations from the novels, historical background and entertaining anecdotes.

Literary Music perform at events throughout the U.K. at stately homes, literary societies and festivals. In February 2012 they were featured on BBC1's Masterchef at a Regency lunch.
