The Concordia Chamber Choir invites you to enjoy THE GLORY OF BAROQUE.
All of the magnificent music in Concordia’s autumn concert was, incredibly, composed within the span of less than forty years - in that astonishing flowering of European music in the early 18th century which we now call The Baroque. Our programme especially celebrates the trio of composers whose work defines this golden era: Vivaldi, Handel and Corelli.
The centrepiece of the evening will be Vivaldi’s Gloria, almost a ‘lost’ masterpiece till the mid-20th century, but now one of the most popular and revered works in the canon of sacred music. The genius of Handel will be represented by two contrasting pieces: Zadok The Priest, highly familiar but never failing to take the breath away with its sweep and majesty and Ode For the Birthday Of Queen Anne, a secular cantata, part of which was sung at this summer’s wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Last, but most certainly not least, we are delighted welcome back our very special guests The South Circular Orchestra, who will also perform Corelli's Christmas Concerto.
So please book your tickets now and join us for a stirring evening of Baroque masterworks in the equally inspirational setting of All Saint’s Church.
The performance is at 7.45 pm on Saturday, 24th November at St Faith's Church, Red Post Hill, SE24 9JQ. Tickets cost £14 at the door, or £13 in advance from www.concordiachamberchoir.co.uk. Concessions (students and those on means tested benefits) half price. Remember that feeling you get coming home from an amazing concert? Make a note in your diary now!
