Leicester Early Music Festival (Reviewed)

Contributed by Admin on Aug 21, 2007
"Neil Crutchley Writes:

The Festival is over for another year and there is the same feeling of regret that comes with the end of Christmas or the school holidays. But all good things must come to an end and it is now time to take stock of what has been a remarkably successful series of events and one in which the Festival Director and his team can take justifiable pride.

As predicted the Son et Lumière (sound and light) production met with universal approval and large audiences on two consecutive evenings were transfixed by this striking and unusual form of entertainment. It was the first time something like this has been tried in St. Mary’s and the effect was stunning. The first 600 years of the church’s eventful history were told in a dramatic recitation with appropriate music from St. Mary’s choir, whilst various parts of this ancient church – including the magnificent windows – were lit in different colours."
