The centrepiece of our next concert will be Handel’s glorious Dixit Dominus.  

It’s a work of astonishing originality and virtuosity, and quite hard to believe that Handel was only 22 when he wrote it.  And also hard to believe that it was written over 300 years ago.  

It’s a wonderful, if testing piece for a choir – full of energy, colour and flamboyance.  It is set for a 5 parts  (split sopranos) and 5 soloists.  The soprano duet in the penultimate movement is Handel’s writing at its exquisite best.

We will be pairing the Handel with an early cantata – No 4 – by Bach.  

Our soloists will be Seona Stockel & Anastasia Bevan (sopranos), Simon Clulow (alto), Peter Harris (tenor), William Drakett (bass) with organist Matthew Redman.  Music director is Anthony Bevan.

Come along and hear us at St Mary’s Church Glastonbury at 7:30pm on  Friday 12 April.  Tickets on the door.
