As a long summer day fades into evening, and candles flicker in the twilight, what could be more magical than to feel the air shimmer with song? This enchanting sequence of words and music is drawn from birdsong, sacred music, and four centuries of summer songs: an atmospheric – and entertaining – seasonal counterpart to our much-loved Christmas Music by Candlelight.


Our first ‘Summer Music’ visit to Shrewsbury sold out last year, so we are delighted that Shropshire Music Trust have invited us back to give this concert in a larger venue.
