Concert by The Sixteen, Handel 'Dixit Dominus'

Tickets: £15 - £30
Box Office: National Box Office - / 01904 651485 or
Worcester Live - 01905 611427

The Sixteen choir and orchestra devote an entire evening to the glorious music of Handel, including his virtuosic Dixit Dominus. Conductor Harry Christophers introduces the programme:
‘Handel is one of only a handful of composers who was truly multi-faceted - a master of orchestral and vocal textures, both triumphant and profound. Simply compare the bustling, joyous activity of the Arrival of the Queen of Sheba with the dark, anxious apprehension of the Overture to Jephtha, and you will know exactly what I mean. However, it is majestic grandeur, alongside moments of exquisite tenderness, which overridingly characterise all the works in this programme.’

Handel Arrival of the Queen of Sheba from Solomon
Handel Chandos Anthem No.11 ‘Let God Arise’
Handel Coronation Anthem ‘Let thy Hand be Strengthened’
Handel Overture to Jephtha
Handel Dixit Dominus
