About this Event

CONCERT POSTPONED DUE TO CV-19.

Provisional new date: Saturday 10 October 2020 (to be confirmed)

*

This concert features 400 years of music written for and performed at the great royal occasions – coronations, weddings and funerals. Works of grandeur, grace, solemnity and celebration, they mirror the history of the country and the family they honour. The programme includes music by Weelkes, Handel, Brahms, Elgar, Parry and Rutter.

We are delighted to be joined by the three musicians who so memorably performed Handel's Eternal Source of Light Divine as Meghan Markle walked down the aisle of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle to be married to Prince Harry.

ELIN MANAHAN THOMAS released her début album Eternal Light in 2007 with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and has since performed at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals, and with leading orchestras and conductors.

DAVID BLACKADDER is recognised as one of the world’s leading period trumpeters. His expertise has taken him around the globe and continues to do so, as he collaborates with some of the most exciting figures in classical music.L

LUKE BOND is the Assistant Director of Music of St George’s Chapel following appointments at Clifton College, The Collegiate Church of St Mary, Warwick and eight years as Assistant Director of Music at Truro Cathedral.

RICHARD BANNAN is Musical Director of Petros Singers and Woking Choral Society, Head of Singing at King’s College School, Wimbledon and a Lay-Clerk of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, alongside engagements as a solo and consort singer.

PETROS SINGERS is a well-regarded, auditioned chamber choir with a reputation for high-quality singing and innovative programmes.
