  5. Orchestral Suite No 3 in D BWV 1068 - Johann Sebastian Bach

This term's concert features choral works from English Baroque composers: our native Henry Purcell, and our adopted George Friederic Handel. Both had associations with the Stuart court and the pieces in our programme were composed to mark royal occasions such as coronations, birthdays and funerals. We couple this with three movements from the joyous Suite in D by Bach, which includes the famous Air on the G string.
