We return to the Auden Theatre for another of our popular summer gala concerts with music especially chosen to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen's 90th Birthday year.
Mozart's Mass in C major, K317, was completed in 1779 in Salzburg intended for performance at Easter that year. The popular name, Coronation Mass, may relate to its association with the commemoration of the crowining of a miraculous statue of the Virgin Mary near Salzburg. Others connect it to the coronation of Emperor Leopold ll in Prague in 1791.
Handel was commissioned by King George ll to write new music for his coronation service. He had just a few weeks notice. On the morning of 11 October 1727 George ll was crowned to the accompaniment of Handel's four new anthems. This music has featured in British coronations ever since.
The Suite in F major (HWV 348) is one of three suites which comprise The Water Music which premiered on 17 July 1717 after King George l had requested a concert on the River Thames. It remains a firm favourite to this day.
