We are delighted that the ECSE are able to return to close our Festival with 'Flights of Fancy', a programme that reflects the overall Festival theme.

During the 16th and 17th centuries composers enjoyed writing pieces that would surprise, baffle and delight both audiences and musicians. This programme is full of twists and turns, featuring birdsong, church bells, echoes, chromaticism, battles, a sonata that never cadences and an In nomine in which the musicians are (deliberately) out of time. All you can expect from this programme is the unexpected.........

The ECSE is a virtuoso period instrument ensemble with a host of distinguished recordings to its name. They have delighted audiences at our previous Festivals and this year bring a chamber organ and virginals to augment their timeless haunting sounds.

Rehearsal: Those who have bought tickets for the evening performance can sit in on part of the rehearsal in the church from 3.00pm. Please bring your ticket to gain admittance

Tickets: £20 adults, £2 students
