Splendour in London
Handel’s Water Music and Other Royal Festivities
October 12October 15, 2023

Purcell and Handel gave artistic voice to the British royal family’s most festive and poignant moments. Jeannette Sorrell leads a sumptuous orchestra in Handel’s lively Water Music. The acclaimed Apollo’s Singers and soloists join for Purcell’s heartbreakingly beautiful Funeral Music for Queen Mary and sparkling selections from King Arthur. Handel’s splendid Zadok the Priest, with a timpani procession, rounds out this festive program.

“Jeannette Sorrell leading Handel’s Water Music proved a revelation… a lithe, robust performance that danced, springing forth with irrepressible energy. One could hardly imagine a more idiomatic or vital reading of this Handelian gem. In classical and Baroque repertoire, Sorrell is difficult to surpass.”
