September 22, 2019 at 4 p.m.

You’ll feel like royalty when the Consort’s vocalists and instrumentalists serenade you with exquisite music composed for Kings and Queens. 1727 was a banner year for such outpourings. Bach’s now rarely performed Trauerode (BWV 198) was first heard at a memorial service for the Electress of Saxony and nominal Queen of Poland, Christiane Eberhardine. Further afield in England, George Frideric Handel composed a set of enthralling anthems for the coronation of King George II, introduced by his celebrated work loved by today’s audiences, “Zadok the Priest.” More information here.
