Handel: Coronation Anthems, A Celebration of Prince George – with Devonport Chamber Orchestra
Auckland Welsh Choir and Devonport Chamber Orchestra present four sets of Coronation Anthems by Handel, as well as Divers Ayres & Lullabies to welcome the new baby prince.
The programme begins with Tair Pluen y Cymry, a short paean to The Prince of Wales’s feathers – the heraldic badge of the Heir Apparent to the Commonwealth realm’s thrones. St Matthew’s will provide a dramatic acoustic for the magnificent Coronation Anthems which evoke a mood of ceremony and patriotism.
Our charity partners for this concert are The Auckland City Mission who provided much needed support to those in need especially during the upcoming holiday season.
