Masterpieces of Baroque era to be performed at Peterborough Cathedral
PUBLISHED: 10:32 26 March 2017
Coronation anthems composed by George Frideric Handel for George II in 1727 will be the centrepiece of a concert at Peterborough Cathedral on Saturday April 1.
The Baroque Masterworks concert will be performed by Peterborough Cathedral Choir, Youth Choir and Festival Chorus, with period instrument ensemble, Instruments of Time and Truth.
Amongst the four anthems is the famous Zadok the Priest, described by Classic FM’s afternoon presenter Anne-Marie Minhall as “a spine-tingling, choral belter”.
The Coronation anthems have been sung at the coronation of every British monarch since they were written.
The concert will also include the Gloria by Antonio Vivaldi.
