The four Coronation Anthems were composed by Handel in 1727 for the coronation of King George II. The anthems feature robust orchestration and are often used in royal weddings, coronations, and film.

Te Deum is a magnificent choral drama that was commissioned by Empress Marie Therese, the wife of Franz I of Austria.  It features engaging interplay between the chorus and orchestra along with stunning harmonies.

Handel's Organ Concerto in F Major was among six organ concertos written as interludes in performances of oratorios.  Because of its engaging, charming, and vigorous music, the F Major has become the most popular of his organ concertos.

Large print programs are available at the door.
