Choir Coronation Concert

5pm, Sunday 26 February 2017. Holy Trinity Cathedral.

To celebrate the 65th Anniversary of the Accession to the throne of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Head of the Commonwealth, Holy Trinity Cathedral Choir invites you to a concert of music written for Coronations throughout the ages.

Starting with Handel’s Zadok the Priest, written for the Coronation of King George II in 1727, the programme will also include music by Purcell, Elgar, Bairstow, Parry, Willan and Vaughan-Williams.

The Cathedral Organist, Philip Smith, will also play some of the music specially composed for these celebrations.

All proceeds of the concert will go towards the provision of a chamber organ for the Bishop Selwyn Chapel.
