Aenigmata

Edward Nesbit and Thomas Hodgson were colleagues in the Music Department at King’s College London, and they initiated a musical collaboration soon after the first lockdown began. Called ‘Aenigmata’, the project draws upon Latin riddles by St Aldhelm to create a commentary on the new, uncertain world that we all live in.
