An evening with Mr Handel at St Jamesís Church
The St James's Singers, from Warwickshire, will get a handle on Handel on October 15th in a concert with the Saint James's Players, and conductor Julian Harris at Saint James's Church, Chipping Campden. The concert, entitled An Evening with Mr Handel, will include one of the four Coronation Anthems, My Heart is Inditing, the thrilling Music for the Royal Fireworks, the enchanting Chandos Anthem, Let God Arise, and the Foundling Hospital Anthem, which is packed with surprises, and The Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne, with its mesmeric Eternal Source of Light Divine.
The whole concert will be performed on authentic instruments with Trumpeter Rob Formison, who so wowed Chipping Campden audiences at the Festival's live Radio 3 broadcast with Florilegium in May, leading the cast of players, supported by Chipping Campden's own organist, Richard Stephens. The soloists comprise Helen Neeves - soprano, Alexandra Gibson - alto, David Brown - tenor and James Gower-bass.
It promises to be an unforgettable evening. Tickets from 0844 338 0338 or the link from www.stjamessingers.com to the ticket hotline. Tickets cost £17.50 and £12.50. Some tickets will be available on the door.
