Will Todd Jazz Missa Brevis; Handel’s Greatest Messiah Choruses

  • St Katharine Cree 86 Leadenhall Street London, England, EC3A 3BP United Kingdom (map)

The Angmering Chorale make a welcome return to the Brandenburg Choral Festival with this programme of contrasting choral works, all of which promise to uplift and inspire.

In the first half they will perform some of the great choruses from Handel's Messiah, including All we like sheep, Worthy is the Lamb and, of course, Hallelujah. In the second half, an opportunity to hear Will Todd's innovative Jazz Missa Brevis, breathing new life into the Latin mass texts with jazz idioms, including a ballad-like Sanctus, and an up-beat Latin-groove-inspired Gloria. To finish, echoes of the Proms and Summertime to warm a February evening, with the entertaining Fantasia on British Sea Songs and ever popular Jerusalem.


George Frideric Handel | Choruses from Messiah
And the Glory of the LordAnd He shall purify For unto us a child is born Glory to God His yoke is easy | Behold the Lamb of God | Surely he hath borne our griefsAnd with his stripes | All we like sheepHe trusted in God | Lift up your heads | Their sound is gone out Let us break their bondsHallelujah | Since by man came death Worthy is the Lamb (Amen)
