‘Restored to Glory’: The story of Clayton & Bell’s fresco decoration introduced with a video presentation by Colin Brownlee
Colin instigated and managed the restoration of previously hidden frescos inside St Leonard’s. Dating from 1864, the Victorian church is of national importance, reflected in the Grade 1 listing. The magnificent decorative scheme was devised by the Reverend James Skinner, and executed by Clayton & Bell. The restoration has been worked on by Donald Smith, a highly skilled craftsman.
To begin and end this special event, Iain Simcock, former sub-organist at Westminster Abbey and assistant director of music at Westminster Cathedral, plays organ music from the works of Johann Sebastian Bach:
Trio: Vater unser im Himmelreich BWV682; Passacaglia; and Fugue in C minor BWV 582
