Programme Note

Enjoy one of Handel’s finest works, the lively ‘Dixit Dominus’, written in the Italian style when he was just 22 years old. Handel’s Chandos Anthem no 9, written in England ten years later, uses an operatic sense of drama in a smaller scale work, ‘O Praise the Lord with one consent’.

Our string orchestra will play the Symphony in B flat by another well known musician of the London Baroque period: William Boyce, Master of the Kings Musick and organist at the Chapel Royal. The beautiful choral setting of the Salvator Mundi by John Blow, Purcell’s teacher and predecessor at Westminster Abbey completes the concert.
