Featuring Handel’s Coronation Anthems and Mozart’s Coronation Mass
Be treated like royalty!
Please join us next weekend as we perform Handel’s Coronation Anthems and Mozart’s Coronation Mass. Handel’s monumental Coronation Anthems were composed in 1727 for the coronation of King George II and Queen Caroline of England. One of the anthems, Zadok the Priest, has been heard at every coronation since! Mozart composed the Mass in C Major in 1779 when he was the court composer in Salzburg – the mass was given the nickname The Coronation Mass at the Imperial Court in Vienna as it had become the preferred music for royal and imperial coronations.
Tea and scones will be served during intermission courtesy of our sponsors The British Grocer and Whole Foods Market.
Our choir will be joined by soloists Allison Walmsley, soprano, Georgia Burashko, mezzo soprano, River Guard, tenor and Michael Robert-Broder, baritone.
