Event description
Gabrieli Roar celebrate the music, ceremony and liturgy of the English coronation rite in a programme for choir, organ and brass ensemble.

About this Event

The four coronations of the 20th century were enormous and extravagant. Replete with festive pageantry, these ceremonies were joyful celebrations of British music, employing tremendous forces. Choirs from across London and beyond were marshalled to provide a chorus of over 400 voices; a full-size symphony orchestra was squeezed into Westminster Abbey, whilst fanfare trumpets and drums heralded the celebrations.

Join us to celebrate the release of a new recording recreating these vast musical forces. Paul McCreesh and Gabrieli will be joined by young singers from the David Ross Education Trust Youth Choir and Tiffin Boys’ Choir, bring the history, ceremony and liturgy of these four extraordinary coronations to life in a programme for choir, organ and brass ensemble.

The programme includes works such as Handel Zadok the Priest, Wesley Thou wilt keep him, Parry I was Glad, Stanford 'Coronation' Gloria and Walton 'Coronation' Te Deum.

Ticket holders are invited to join us for a glass of wine after the concert.
