Concert Season 2016-2017
Our December 2016 concert brings you choruses from some of the greatest choral literature of the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods. Our programme opens with G. F. Handel’s Coronation Anthem No. 4 “My Heart Is Inditing”, composed for the 1727 coronation of King George II and Queen Caroline with all the ceremonial grandeur so typical of the musical master. Other works include choral excerpts from “Magnificat” by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, “Christmas Oratorio” by Camille Saint-Saëns, and Handel’s “Messiah”. We conclude the first portion of the concert with the “Hallelujah Chorus”.
The second half is devoted entirely to the music of the holiday season from the carols of John Rutter to everyone’s favourite traditional sing-alongs.
