Instruments of Time and Truth is a period-instrument group founded in 2014 to provide a platform for international performers resident in and around Oxford. From its inspirational directors Edward Higginbottom and Christopher Bucknall, through acclaimed soloists Christopher Purves and Antony Pay, to emerging artists Bojan Cicic and Guy Cutting, IT&T celebrates Oxford's exceptional talent. 

Despite being a group in its infancy, IT&T has already performed at Garsington Opera at Wormsley, the Holywell Music Room, SJE Arts, the Sheldonian Theatre, University Church of St Mary the Virgin and Dorchester Abbey. Further afield, the ensemble made its European debut with Edward Higginbottom in the extraordinary Palau de la Musica Catalana in Barcelona, which was hailed in El Pais as ‘exemplary’. IT&T's London debut took place on the 25th November at King's Place, alongside which the group made its first appearance on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’.
