Jeffrey Skidmore conductor
A programme of glorious music for a magical midsummer evening, performed by the soft glow of candlelight as daylight fades. This enchanting sequence of music and readings is inspired by birdsong and by the season – uplifting repertoire to send you away singing of Summertime …
