Ex Cathedra Summer Music by Candelight

Ex Cathedra
Jeffrey Skidmore conductor

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.

Programme includes:
Alec Roth Die güldene Sonne: Dawn Chorus
Roxanna Panufnik Child of Heaven: Dawn Chorus
Sumer is icumen in – 13th century English
Thomas Morley Now is the month of Maying
Debussy Trois chansons de Charles d’Orléans
Gershwin Summertime
Te lucis ante terminum – Plainchant
