The King's Consort - The Coronation of King George II
Founded in 1989, Music in Country Churches was set up with the active support of the Prince of Wales, with the specific aim of bringing world-class musicians to country churches of particular beauty and importance. The concerts we arrange during our three annual weekends are designed to raise funds to help these churches with maintaining and upkeeping their fabric.
A spectacular musical pageant using every corner of the church, which will include drum processions, fanfares from six trumpeters, dramatic shouts of acclamation, superb music by Tallis, Blow, Purcell and the four Handel Coronation Anthems.
Light refreshements including wine and soft drinks will be on sale in the marquee from 6:00pm, during the interval and for twenty minutes after the performance. Buffet suppers will also be available before and after the concert if ordered and paid for in advance. A booking form giving details of the menu and prices will be sent out with tickets.
