Splendour of the Baroque - Saturday 22 May
Armidale’s own chamber choir Fiori Musicali is excited to return to the concert stage in performance of two masterpieces from the pen of the great baroque choral composer George Frederic Handel.
Accompanied by some of Armidale’s finest string players the 30 strong choir will sing Handel’s glorious Coronation Anthem ‘Let thy Hand Be Strengthened’. This will be followed his electrifying 5 part Vesper psalm Dixit Dominus, written when in Italy aged just 21.
Also on the programme is J S Bach’s magnificent Eminor flute sonata. Chris Clark will make the music spring to life with a thrilling, quicksilver virtuosity.
