Baroque Band: All The King's Men
Baroque Band will take the 1949/2006 movie “All the King’s Men” as its starting point for an exploration of music from composers of the English Chapel Royal – Henry Purcell, John Blow, and George Frideric Handel.
Although the Chapel Royal had existed for many years, John Blow (1649-1708) was the first composer to hold the official title “Composer to the Chapel Royal” when the post was created in 1699. Baroque Band’s opening program will feature Blow’s anthem “God spake sometime in visions” along with anthems and odes by Henry Purcell, and Handel’s magnificent Dixit Dominus.
Baroque Band is excited to announce the debut of its own professional choral ensemble for this concert program.
