Join Perth Symphonic Chorus and conductor Dr Margaret Pride OAM in the majestic surrounds of Winthrop Hall for their first post-COVID-19 lockdown concert.
Taking place on Saturday 24 October, 8 pm, Of Kings & Queens is set to be an inspiring concert of English music for royalty!
Handel's thrilling Coronation Anthems will dominate the programme, including the stirring Zadok the Priest, an anthem performed at every coronation since its premiere at the coronation of King George II in 1727.
Written with the full splendour of a coronation in mind, the orchestration is exciting with the exhilarating full textures of the chorus reinforced by scintillating trumpets and timpani. It takes very little imagination to be there in Westminster Abbey, side by side with royalty and the elite of the landed gentry!
Other works for royalty include Coronation trumpet fanfares, The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba played by 'wunderkind' organist Alessandro Pittorino, and works written by amateur composer Henry VIII, including the perennial Greensleeves, arranged for 8 part unaccompanied choir, as well as elegant dance music from his royal court.
