    Excerpt of a performance by The Lincoln’s Inn Choir, featuring the premiere of a new setting by Joanna Marsh of Donne’s Holy Sonnet, “Batter my heart, three-person’d God” (part of the Inn’s John Donne commission series)
  • Dedication of our newly installed Treasurers’ Shields by The Rt Revd Rose Hudson Wilkin, Bishop of Dover and Honorary Bencher of Lincoln’s Inn. These are on display alongside the Chapel’s re-installed and freshly renovated stained glass.
