The Dream of the Rood

Join us during Holy Week at St Dunstan’s for a candle-lit and atmospheric recital of the beautiful Anglo-Saxon poem The Dream of the Rood – a vision of the Crucifixion from the perspective of the Cross. Using a mixture of the original Old English and modern language to make this poetry understandable while still authentic, this evening will be a lovely and unusual opportunity for reflection, as well as a taster of one of our most cherished Anglo-Saxon poems.

Translation and recital by Caroline Godden.
