The Sixteen: Handel’s Coronation Anthems

November 7 @ 19:00 - 21:00

The king shall rejoice! When George II was crowned King, he asked Handel to write the music – and the result was sheer sonic majesty. Expect trumpets, expect splendour and expect choral singing to make the spine tingle, as period ensemble The Sixteen perform Handel’s coronation anthems – including Zadok the Priest – in a celebration of the baroque era at its grandest, its most opulent and its most glorious.

George Frideric Handel ‘Arrival of the Queen of Sheba’ from Solomon
George Frideric Handel My heart is inditing
George Frideric Handel Organ Concerto in F major Op.4 No.4 (original version concluding with ‘Hallelujah’ chorus)

George Frideric Handel The King shall rejoice
