Choir Concert: Handel Brockes-Passion

Friday 22 April 2016, 7.30pm
Kings Place, London

A rare opportunity to hear one of Handel’s early oratorios, written around 1715-16, from the world-renowned Choir of King's College, Cambridge, joining forces with one of the finest period instrument orchestras in the world, The Hanover Band. Nicknamed after its librettist, German poet Barthold Heinrich Brockes, the work is the only German-language oratorio from Handel's pen and served as a model for Bach's St John Passion.

Choir concert, Aldeburgh festival, Southwold

Sunday 19 June 2016, 3.00pm
Blythburgh Church, Southwold

On a Festival day dominated by birdsong, it is the memory of bells, their sonorities, overtones and the ancient tradition of change-ringing, that colours Julian Anderson's Mass. It concludes a programme of music for the liturgy - hymns, psalms, anthems and carols – that straddles the 17th and 21st centuries. At its heart, Britten’s secular hymn of praise with its lilting reverential refrain and Auden's richly evocative text, perfumed by the vocal depictions of instruments.
