Sacred Spaces launches today

We’re very proud to launch the biggest ever Cities and Memory project today – Sacred Spaces.

Explore the project in full at www.citiesandmemory.com/sacredspaces.

The 123 sound artists and field recordists who took part in the project come from locations all over the world, as far afield as Australia, Lebanon, Mexico and India.

The sounds include some of the world’s most iconic sacred spaces, including Notre-Dame de Paris, Seville Cathedral, the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Milan’s Duomo and Wat Pho in Bangkok.

Recordings of English churches in remote locations was provided through a partnership with the Churches Conservation Trust, who provided Cities and Memory with exclusive access to their properties, including church organs and bells.
