Handel & Purcell - Royal Hospital Chelsea

I performed with The Wren Players at the Royal Hospital in Chelsea on Tuesday 4th of July 2017. The evening of music began at 18:30 with an outdoor performance in the Royal Hospital’s ‘Figure Court’. It was a beautiful and warm evening. 


The outdoor performance included a selection from Handel’s Water Music (D Major suite) and his Music for the Royal Fireworks:

Water Music - D major suite
Alla Hornpipe
Trumpet Minuet

Music for the Royal Fireworks
La Paix
La Réjouissance
Menuets I & II


At 19:00, a second performance began in the chapel. It featured Purcell’s ‘Hail, bright Cecilia’ and the Wren Players accompanied the choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, under the direction of Will Vann.
