Richard McLester releases a new CD, called Songs Of The Light
. The songs, written to be performed as the launch of the art installation The Light, follow the journey of a mythical figure Sulac
as he goes in search of the light. It’s a journey of discovery, exploration, sadness & loss but also one of hope.
The cd booklet contains all of the words to the music, as well as photos from the launch of The Light in Poole, Dorset.
All of the music has been written and recorded by Richard McLester. St Peter’s Parkstone Parish Choir
& Treble Soloist Zach Bullock
appear on the track The Lowly Candle Flame
. The CD also includes songs such as Stars (Lead Me On)
and Escape From The Flood
NOT FOR PROFIT
. All money raised from CD Sales will go directly back into the ongoing project “The Light” to help put on future community events, and fund workshops & mentoring sessions for those who get involved.
Performed by the choristers of Wimborne Minster, conducted by David Gostick
and written by Sam Hanson
, An Evening Cantata
takes it’s inspiration from the service of Choral Evensong.
The work is written for 4 part choir, childrens choir, piano and organ. It was commissioned as a major project for Wimborne Minster
Combining virtuoso piano playing with children’s choirs, the work includes two major extended musical settings of the Passion of Jesus
and The Exodus Of The Israelites
(including piano variations).
Conical Sphere Music
recorded, engineered and manufactured the project, which is now available for sale online and in Wimborne Minster.

The tabernacle, which was built in 5 sections included a centre made out of concentric squares which meant that when the structure was raised up, the cloth fell away and revealed a large wooden crib in the centre of the church.
The aim was to invite the community to actively experience walking into the tabernacle and place their cloth into the manger, which many also said reminded them of the stable in Bethlehem…
