Handel: Coronation Anthems – Choir of The Queen’s College, Oxford & Instruments of Time and Truth

Saturday, June 8, 2024 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Choir of The Queen’s College, Oxford, and Instruments of Time and Truth join forces to perform three of Handel’s famous coronation anthems alongside choral works by Giovanni Bononcini (1670-1747), Handel’s main rival in London: there was little to separate the two in terms of public status and reputation, and they were dubbed the Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee of London’s music scene in the 1720s. Soon after his arrival in London Bononcini was afforded the honour of writing a grand orchestral anthem – When Saul was King – for the magnificent funeral of the Duke of Marlborough, included in this concert.

This concert marks the launch of the Choir’s new CD on Signum Classics, with the Academy of Ancient Music: How are the mighty fallen: Choral Music by Giovanni Bononcini’.
