Summer Music by Candlelight
Jeffrey Skidmore conductor
On a long midsummer day, join Ex Cathedra for an enchanting programme of choral music and readings, performed by the glow of candlelight. Expect glorious music from across the centuries – seasonal favourites and little-known gems - inspired by birdsong, summer holidays, sea and sunshine.
