Program

Robert King is back with his group to perform the musical reconstruction of the coronation of King George II in 1727 at Westminster Abbey. Fanfares, coronation anthems and ceremonial music with works by Henry Purcell, John Blow, William Child, John Farmer, Thomas Tallis and Orlando Gibbons. A celebration that will envelop the audience from all corners of the L’Auditori. The best English music for paying tribute to one of the oldest monarchies in Europe, not forgetting the anthem Zadok the Priest, ever present in the imagination of the ‘sports king’.
