Last Year's Festival

2017 was a truly special year for the Festival. The newly renovated Church wall paintings and recently installed lighting served to provide a perfect setting for 10 days of the most glorious music during October. We commissioned a new work by Mark Bowden (inspired by the paintings) and the BBC recorded Robert Smith's recital of the 'lost' Telemann fantasias for solo viola da gamba for The Early Music Show on Radio 3. Wonderful choral music from Fieri and the Orlando Consort, a brilliant performance from the Albion Quartet, sophisticated jazz from Malija, and a spellbinding Christmas Concert from The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments, all contributed to a sublime and diverse celebration of music at its best.
