Join us for an atmospheric programme of classical music by candlelight.

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.

Following a sell-out visit to Shrewsbury last year, Shropshire Music Trust have invited Ex Cathedra to return to the larger venue of St Mary's Church for an atmospheric evening of wonderful music.
