All London's live music


Choral, Classical, Orchestral

PINNER FESTIVAL CHOIR, SOLOISTS & ORCHESTRA

Pinner Parish Church, HA5 3AA , [Venue Details]

Handel Coronation Anthems, Haydn Nelson Mass

Two masters, composing in grand style, complete our week.

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.

With text chosen from King James Bible, these works marked his first compositions as a British citizen, and are appropriately majestic in both style and impact. 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. His initial title was Missa in angustiis (‘in troubled times’), but the first performance coincided with Lord Nelson’s major victory over Napoleon (Battle of the Nile) – usage changed, especially after Nelson and Lady Hamilton attended a performance and met the composer.

The standard mass movements all feature choir, with striking use of the soloists, and the orchestral writing benefitted from his London Symphonies. Despite the title and context, the core message is one of faith.
