Music for the Queen's Jubilee
All Saints Church, Clifton BS8 3ED
Programmes £10 at the door. Students £5. Accompanied under-16s free.
The Queen's Coronation service in 1953 consisted of settings of texts that have been part of coronations since the Middle Ages. This concert's programme focuses on the music that may have been used at the first Elizabeth's Coronation in 1559, including settings of 'I was glad' and 'Zadok the Priest', made famous later by Purcell, Handel and Parry.
A madrigal or two in praise of 'fair Oriana', some royal music for organ, and settings of prayers for the health and well-being of the Queen, as relevant now as they were more than 450 years ago.
