Candlelight Baroque

The Cathedral is packed tonight for the last in the current run of concerts. The Lancashire Sinfonietta - a professional orchestra based in the county - are performing under the title 'Candlelight Baroque'.

The large audience clearly enjoyed the performance, which included an appearance by soprano Elizabeth Weisberg. Works included Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 and Scarlatti's Christmas Cantata.

This time of year is perfect for a bit of extra candlelight - these candelabra look wonderful along the Cathedral's north windows.
