Please note that because of the coronavirus pandemic, this concert, originally scheduled for April 2020, has been postponed until 12 November 2020. We look forward to seeing you in November, please check back later in the meantime to confirm the date, time and further details.

Ad Libitum Choir, with soloists and orchestra, are proud to present two of the greatest choral masterpieces of the Baroque era.

Bach's Magnificat, a lively setting of Mary's response to the Annunciation by the angel Gabriel, is a challenging and exhilarating showcase of structural and musical word-setting, the first large-scale choral work that Bach composed after his appointment in Leipzig in 1723.

The exuberant Dixit Dominus is a psalm setting written by Handel soon after he had moved to Rome at the age of only 22. It shows the influences of colourful Italian music and is full of dramatic intensity. Handel later made his permanent home in London and is known to have played the organ at St Katharine Cree, the historic City church in which this concert takes place.

We look forward to welcoming you to this evening of stunning vocal and orchestral music.
