Handel Chandos Anthems: London

9 June 2020 7.30pm Wigmore Hall Tickets: £18 - 60

Handel wrote his 11 Chandos Anthems in 1717-18 for the inimitable Duke of Chandos. Despite only having modest musical forces at his disposal, these anthems convey immense strength. They stood outside the mainstream of everyday church music, perfectly conveying the self confident and hedonistic spirit of the time.
