The new CD Songs Of The Light
is finally here! Written to be performed as the launch of the art installation The Light, the songs follow the journey of the mythical figure Sulac
as he goes in search of the light.
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 Lowly Candle Flame (Track 10). The CD also includes songs such as Stars (Lead Me On)
and Escape From The Flood
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.
With just over a month to go before the first live performance in the Dolphin Shopping Centre, we’ve successfully installed The Light
in local church St Peter’s Parkstone. Here’s a sneak preview…
Here are some of the photos taken on the day that BBC South Today came and interviewed Richard McLester about the giant Advent Wreath Lumin-Essence

Jo Kent & BBC South Today News
broadcast “live” from St Peter’s Church, Parkstone with artist, composer & musical director Richard McLester
and Rector Father Michael Camp
The artistic installation, titled Lumin-Essence
is a giant advent wreath (measuring 4 metres in diameter) evoking memories of the fallen during the world wars.
Designed by Richard McLester
specifically for Christmas 2014 (and the centenary of the First World War), presenter Jo Kent
delves deeper into the story behind the artwork and community.
The project has been proudly sponsored by Coleman Insurance Brokers
