Summer Music by Candlelight

Sumer is icumen in - and we can’t wait to celebrate the return of warm, light evenings, birdsong and holidays.

As daylight fades and candles glow in the twilight, we invite you to unwind and enjoy an evening of enchanting music and readings. Expect choral classics, a sprinkle of surprises, and some fun as we journey from the promise of a new dawn to the serenity of sunset.

Running time: 2 hours, including interval.
Refreshments will be available to purchase.

Jeffrey's introduction to the season

"The two solstice concerts - Summer Music and Christmas Music - have for a long time attracted large audiences with their mix of a diverse range of music and poetry presented and choreographed to explore the architecture and acoustic of the beautiful buildings in which we are privileged to perform...

This year, the Summer Music by Candlelight programme includes an ornithological theme - the windhover, swallow, cuckoo and bluebird - with music by Clément Janequin, Benjamin Britten, Caroline Shaw, Charles Villiers Stanford and Liz Dilnot Johnson.  There are poems by Carol Ann Duffy, Shakespeare, Maya Angelou and Benjamin Zephaniah alongside the usual selection of songs about sea, sun and sand."
