Stratford Summer Music presents:

The Coronation of King George II

The Theatre of Early Music
under the direction of
Daniel Taylor

Coronations are grand occasions and none was grander than the 1727 ceremony in Westminster Abbey to begin the reign of King George II and Queen Caroline. George Frideric Handel, a favourite of the new king, contributed some of his greatest compositions to this service.

The Theatre of Early Music under the direction of Canada’s famous countertenor, Daniel Taylor, offers the music, pomp and ceremony of that October afternoon in London.

Shakespearean actor, James Blendick, will assume the role of the Archbishop of Canterbury as trumpets, drums, fanfares, processions and memorable choruses recreate the traditions of every British monarchy since 1066.

Organ accompaniment by Andrew Adair.

Michiel Schrey, tenor
Alexander Dobson and Nathaniel Watson, baritones

A concert dedicated to a tumultuous period in history, the 30 Year War,
featuring five German baroque composers;
Buxtehüde (1637-1707)
JC Bach (1642-1703)
Schmelzer (1623-1680)
Kuhnau (1660-1722)
and Bruhns (1665-1697).

To a suffering people music brought comfort, joy and the spiritual elevation for which they longed.
Though music at this time was the product of profoundly religious belief,
today we can appreciate these masterpieces for their intrinsic beauty,
regardless of our own personal path to faith.
