St Endellion Easter Music Festival

04 April – 12 April

St Endellion Easter Music Festival

What’s it all about?

St Endellion Easter Festival founded by the late Richard Hickox and his then wife Frances, who remains the director, almost four decades on.  Like its elder summer sibling, the festival is unusual in that the musicians and singers are a mix of amateur and professional – all of whom pay to participate in just over a week of very high quality music making.

What happens?

Regularly falling in either Holy Week or Easter week this spring festival has made a speciality of English language performances of the Bach Passions whose intensity in the church’s intimate setting is a musical experience not to be missed.  The Festival also includes chamber, orchestral and choral concerts with some of the leading soloists in the country and there is a daily Thought for the Day given by a cross section of eminent speakers.

How can you take part?

The programme of music takes place in the 15th C Collegiate Church of St. Endelienta, St. Endellion, North Cornwall and recent years have seen such works as Copland’s Appalachian Spring, Bach’s St Matthew Passion, Ravel’s G Major Piano Concerto and Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana being programmed in the main concerts.  Early booking is advisable due to the festival’s international reputation, and tickets go on sale in January 2013.  

Did you know?

There is a year long programme of fundraising events in the church featuring an eclectic mix of styles from brass bands to jazz.
