Upcoming Concert: Handel and Bach at Westminster Abbey
This London Festival of Baroque Music concert features the choir of Westminster Abbey performing some of the most well-known pieces of Baroque choral music such as Handel's Coronation Anthems and Bach's Magnificat in D, BWV 243.
The four Coronation Anthems were written for the coronation of King George II and Queen Caroline and first performed at that event in Westminster Abbey in 1727. These were the first works composed by Handel following his naturalisation as a British citizen in February 1727.
The performance will take place at Westminster Abbey, 20 Deans Yd, Westminster at 7.00pm on Tuesday, 14 May 2019.
