Ex Cathedra candlelight by Neil Pugh 2

I’ve got two new reviews up today, both of the same concert. I knew that the annual Christmas Music by Candlelight concerts in Birmingham’s Georgian St Paul’s Church would be worth the effort: our Lichfield neighbour Jeffrey Skidmore never fails to come up with a programme that offers more than enough to write about, even with two completely different reviews to fill. So here’s the short review I wrote for the general readership of The Birmingham Post, and the more extended piece for the The Arts Desk.

As ever, I could easily have written another 1000 words for both – and that’s without describing the delicious mulled wine that we were kindly offered by the retired Ex Cath veteran who shared our pew!
