Oriana Singers
In a Merry Mood: Celebrations by Handel and Bach

William Metcalfe, conductor
• Handel Vespers Psalm Dixit Dominus
• Bach Birthday Cantata # 214 for the Electress of Saxony, Tönet, ihr Pauken! Erschallet, Trompeten!
• Handel Coronation Anthem III The King Shall Rejoice
All music is certified as “suitable for spring”, all wonderful exercises of interplay between counterpoint (Handel was regarded as a superb contrapuntalist, Bach was even better!) and free-flowing melodies. Dixit Dominus was written for Cardinal Ottoboni in Rome, and performed in the Cardinal’s household, since he wanted festive music but as it was Lent, music suitable for Italianate/operatic occasions was not allowed in churches. Handel’s style here is brilliantly Italianate. Bach’s Cantata was specially written for the birthday of the Electress of Saxony, but it contains some surprises which you will learn of at the concert. Finally, The King Shall Rejoice is one of the four baroque-trumpet-glazed Coronation Anthems written for George II’s ceremony in 1727. It is somehow both sophisticated and declamatory.
Sunday, May 21, 4:00 pm
