Ex Cathedra: 50 years of inspiring singing

A seamless blend of seasonal favourites, little-known gems and inspiring new music create a deeply atmospheric celebration of this most wonderful time of the year.

Over the course of an atmospheric evening, artistic director Jeffrey Skidmore’s superlative programme of music and readings explores the wonder – and humour – of the season. Audiences can expect music from across the ages, including seasonal favourites such as Away in a Manger sung as exquisitely as you can imagine, plus a few surprises.
