Join Nonsuch Singers, organist Richard Pearce and our conductor Tom Bullard for this programme of celebratory English anthems of the 17th and 18th centuries.

The most well-known of these are Handel’s anthems written for the coronation of George II and Queen Caroline in 1727 (indeed, such was its popularity that his setting of Zadok the Priest has been performed at every coronation since). Alongside these we perform a selection of earlier works written for, or sung at the coronation of James II in 1685. We complete our programme with a selection of other anthems of note by that genius of the English baroque, Henry Purcell.

We look forward to welcoming you to the candlelit splendour of St Martin-in-the-Fields for this evening of magisterial music.
