Christmas Music by Candlelight
Jeffrey Skidmore conductor
In the stillness of a church, where candles glow… comes the luminous sound of a choir in quiet harmony.
The singers will envelop you with a spellbinding sequence of seasonal favourites, little-known gems, and inspirational new music. Add a selection of readings that capture the mystery - and humour - of Christmas, and you won’t want to miss these popular, atmospheric concerts.
“a truly wonderful, imaginative programme telling the Christmas story in all its guises”
Running time: approx. 2 hours 25 minutes, including interval.
With thanks to Hagley PCC for inviting us to give this concert.
How to book:
General admission - £25 plus £2.80 booking fee
Jeffrey's introduction to the season
"Ex Cathedra is special. A highly regarded music critic once said that the choir was probably the best in the world. This is quite a claim and not only includes the technical virtuosity and unique chemistry of the singers but also the ethos of the ensemble, its ability and desire to communicate with audiences, its imaginative programming, its stylistic awareness and above all its humanity... Another leading commentator, festival director and respected musical thinker summed up our work by saying that Ex Cathedra was 'the most sophisticated, three dimensional and multi-layered of all the leading groups in the country'. This is high praise and something we strive to maintain."
