A Royal Occasion

Add to my Calendar 25-06-2022 19:30 25-06-2022 21:30 36 A Royal Occasion In this Platinum Jubilee year, we will be celebrating 400 years of music written for and performed at the great royal occasions – coronations, weddings and funerals. Works of grandeur, grace, solemnity and celebration, they neatly mirror the history of both the country and the family they honour. We are delighted to be joined by the three musicians who so memorably performed Handel’s Eternal Source of Light Divine at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at Windsor Castle in 2018. Alongside this work, we will perform music by Purcell, Brahms, Elgar, Parry and Rutter. Join us for this spectacular concert in the beautiful surroundings of Holy Trinity Sloane Square. Dubbed the Cathedral of the Arts and Crafts Movement by Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman, the interior is a veritable jewel-box of stained glass, sculpture and highly wrought metalwork by many of the finest artists and craftsmen of the late 19th century. Elin Manahan Thomas released her début album Eternal Light in 2007 with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and has since performed at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals, and with leading orchestras and conductors. David Blackadder is recognised as one of the world’s leading period trumpeters. His expertise has taken him around the globe and continues to do so, as he collaborates with some of the most exciting figures in classical music. Luke Bond is the Assistant Director of Music of St George’s Chapel following appointments at Clifton College, The Collegiate Church of St Mary, Warwick and eight years as Assistant Director of Music at Truro Cathedral. Richard Bannan (Director) is a baritone, conductor and teacher. He sings with many of the country's leading vocal ensembles, including the Choir of St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, where he is a lay clerk.
