A word that means both to revive and resurrect in Welsh, Atgyfodi will bring alive the sound and image archive of St Fagans National Museum of History in a world premiere installation and music performance piece by Welsh composer John Rea.

Inspired by the archive, John’s beautiful composition brings life to the historic buildings at the museum with immersive sonic installations, and a musical performance by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.  John’s stirring and emotional score features the voices that live in these archives.
