This joyous, celebratory concert contains some of the best-loved Baroque choral music in the repertoire.  Purcell’s bright and sparkling Ode for St Cecilia’s Day starts the evening off and is followed by Handel’s extraordinarily powerful anthem, Zadok the Priest. The concert ends with more music from Handel (apparently nicknamed ‘The Great Bear’ by Londoners) with his glorious piece for five vocal soloists and Orchestra.
