Ex Cathedra: Summer Music by Candlelight

Ex Cathedra: Summer Music by Candlelight

Wednesday, June 20, 2018 - 20:30

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.
