FROM COURT TO CATHEDRAL – Music by Bach & Handel

From Court to Cathedral features music by the two giants of Baroque music, Bach and Handel. We open the performance with elegant and spirited instrumental music for strings by Handel, including his Concerto Grosso Op.6 no.1 in G and incidental music from his opera Il pastor fido (‘the faithful shepherd’). We will then be joined by violin soloist Lara Hall who will perform Bach’s soulful violin concerto in A minor. The second half of the concert moves from the world of court instrumental music to the cathedral with Bach’s vibrant Mass in A major BWV 234. We are joined by eight superb singers: sopranos Jayne Tankersley and Elizabeth Mandeno, altos Jessica Wells and Helen Acheson, tenors Jack Timings and Sid Chand, and basses Chalium Poppy and James Harrison.
Book here with NZ Barok for either Friday 30th September 7.30pm, Saturday 1st October 7.30pm or Sunday 2nd October 2pm
