Theodore of Tarsus was consecrated Archbishop of Canterbury in Rome in 667. He and Abbot Hadrian, a Berber from North Africa, arrived in Canterbury in 669. Widely read in the Greek and Latin classics as well as theological subjects, they founded a school which became renowned for its academic excellence. This one-hour concert celebrates the lives of Theodore and Hadrian with chant for Bishops and Abbots and contemporaneous writings by Bede and Aldhelm.
