With Cheerful Notes
A Concert of works by Bach, Handel and Vivaldi, accompanied by a baroque Orchestra
Over the past few seasons Horsham Chamber Choir has been accompanied by a harp, a group of sackbuts , a baroque string ensemble and baroque flutes, and a consort of viols. This coming November the Choir, under the direction of Jenny Hansell, is performing again with the period string ensemble Cavalli Consort in a concert entitled ‘With cheerful notes’. This time the strings will be joined by baroque oboes in a programme of music by the three big baroque composers – Bach, Handel and Vivaldi. Movements from two of Handel’s anthems written for the first Duke of Chandos, a setting of the Magnificat by Vivaldi and Lobet den Herrn, Bach’s large scale setting of the shortest psalm (117) are the main works in this programme of music in praise of God. Indeed, as the concert title suggests, there will be many ‘cheerful notes’ sung and played so do come and listen.
Mulled apple juice will be served from 4pm and the concert will end by 6.30pm.
