On Saturday, 21st September a new installation ‘Pilgrim’ will be opened at Mottisfont. Hywell Davies has composed the work in collaboration with Kuniko Kato (percussion) and Laurence Williams (bass baritone) and they explore the concept of ‘pilgrimage and personal journeys’. The loudspeakers will be placed inside four hemlock tree trunks which stand at the centre of a circle of beech trees.

Quirky Fact: In the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, Pilgrims would stop at Mottisfont on their journey from Salisbury to Winchester to worship a relic of a  finger said to belong to St. John the Baptist.
