Summer Music by Candlelight

Jeffrey Skidmore conductor

Join us for an enchanting programme of music and readings, performed by the glow of candlelight on a long midsummer day. Enjoy glorious choral music from across the centuries – seasonal favourites and little-known gems - inspired by birdsong, holidays, sea and sunshine. What better way to celebrate the return of summer and the easing of restrictions.

Programme includes:
The Windhover (world première) Liz Dilnot Johnson
Sumer is icumen in 13th century English
Hymn to St Cecilia Benjamin Britten
Trois chansons Maurice Ravel
La mer Charles Trenet arr. Skidmore
Summer Holiday Bruce Welch & Brian Bennett arr. Skidmore
St Teresa’s Bookmark Penelope Thwaites
Te lucis ante terminum 7th century chant
Night Prayer Alec Roth
