Your visit will allow you to walk around the outside of the stone circle, and you can listen to some of the myths and legends about Stonehenge on the audio tour. Salisbury, on the banks of the River Avon, is best known for its glorious cathedral.

Salisbury Cathedral dates back to 1220 and has the tallest spire of any cathedral in England. It is also home to the best preserved original manuscript of the Magna Carta. The town retains some lovely medieval streets, and the 15th century Poultry Cross is certainly worth a visit.

In this course, we will explore the ways in which conflict has provoked response in music, from the seventeenth-century religious wars to Amy Winehouse and Ziggy Stardust in modern times. We will examine the relationship between present socio-political currents and contemporary musical trends. Walking tours, live performances, and visits to sites such as Abbey Road Studios, homes of London's rock stars, Camden Jazz Café, Covent Garden, Westminster Abbey, Chapel Royal, and St. Paul’s Cathedral will supplement readings, podcasts, and discussions.
