The nave of Winchester Cathedral will resound with magnificent baroque trumpets and timpani as the Waynflete Singers are joined by Florilegium for a brilliant evening of Baroque Masterpieces on Saturday March 9th. The evening features two joyful choral works, Bach's Magnificat and Handel's Dettingen Te Deum.
Bach's Magnificat is one of his most popular works, with five part chorus, five soloists and full baroque orchestra complete with trumpets and timpani. Handel's Dettingen Te Deum, the hymn of praise written as a thanksgiving for the victory at the battle of Dettingen, similarly resounds with trumpets and an exultant sound. An outstanding line-up of soloists will join the choir.
Baroque ensemble Florilegium, described in the Times as 'One of the most flamboyant of the younger generation of British Baroque ensembles' are well known to Winchester audiences for their stylish playing and lightness of touch. Their world-class performances have been enjoyed by in concert halls as far-flung as Buenos Aires, Sydney and Berlin.
The choral works will be complemented by Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No 3, a showpiece for the strings, and Handel's delightful Organ Concerto ''The Cuckoo and the Nightingale', with its lovely evocation of bird song. The solo part in the organ concerto will be played by George Castle, formerly organist at Worcester Cathedral and Winchester Cathedral. Andrew Lumsden, director of the Waynflete Singers will conduct and bring his usual passion and precision to the performance.
Booking is open now through the Winchester Cathedral website What's On page.
