Handel Coronation Anthems
Mozart Coronation Mass K.317
Marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and the 70th anniversary of the Coronation in 2023, Cirencester Choral Society is joined by Bristol Ensemble to perform music by Handel and Mozart under the baton of conductor Carleton Etherington.
Handel’s Coronation Anthems were composed for the coronation of King George II in 1727, the year in which Handel was granted British Citizenship. The best known of the four anthems, Zadok the Priest, has been sung at every British coronation since.
