We return to Guildford Cathedral for our first concert of 2018; a glittering collection of Baroque favourites including Bach’s 3rd Brandenburg Concerto and Magnificat in D, Handel’s stirring coronation anthem, Zadok the Priest and Albinoni’s moving Adagio which many will know from its use in the soundtrack of many films, including Gallipoli and more recently, Manchester by the Sea.

Bach’s beautiful Magnificat in D is one of his most popular vocal works and is set on a grand scale – a five-part choir and five soloists. The piece calls for a large orchestra, given its period, and we will be performing with the Brandenburg Sinfonia, whose musicians are highly respected for the clarity and interpretative quality of their playing. The work has a characteristic balance between beauty and drama and is a must-hear for any Bach aficionado.

Join us for a reflective, uplifting evening of much-loved music which has influenced and inspired composers, musicians and audiences for more than 250 years.
