Ex Cathedra Consort
Jeffrey Skidmore

As the sun sets on Shoreditch Church, join Ex Cathedra for a midsummer concert by candlelight.

This choral pilgrimage moves through madrigals by Thomas Morley to Britten’s delicate Flower Songs, contemporary works by James MacMillan, and Gershwin’s enduring Summertime, sprinkled with readings from across the ages.

Skidmore and his choir do this sort of thing superbly.” The Arts Desk
