Handel Coronation Anthems & Haydn Nelson Mass

Two masters, composing in grand style, complete this year's Pinner Music Festival, as the Festival Choir and Orchestra are joined by visiting soloists Rebecca Ryland-Jones, Alison Dunne, Stephen A Brown & Michael Hickman, under the baton of conductor Paul Jeanes.

Handel composed his Coronation Anthems for the accession of George II in 1727, and they have been played regularly at coronations ever since – Zadok the Priest is the best known, but Let thy Hand be Strengthened, The King shall Rejoice, and My Heart is Inditing each has its own mood and character. We shall hear three.

Haydn composed the Nelson Mass in 1798 towards the end of his long life, and many regard it as his finest work. The standard mass movements all feature choir, with striking use of the soloists, and the orchestral writing benefitted from his London Symphonies.
