Why See Long Live The Queen?
A royal duo
A commission for a birthday and a funerary lament make up the program of this ebullient evening celebrating two esteemed royal female patrons of the baroque. Multiple soloists including Dominique McCormick, Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen and Ryland Angel and the UH Moores School Concerto Chorale contribute this unique program that features compositions from Bach and Handel.
Rarely performed, Bach's 1717 Trauerode captures the sadness of the passing of beloved Christine Eberhardine of Saxony, whose shock death shook her realm. Alongside is Handel's 1713 Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne. It is not known if Anne ever heard the work, but she did grant Handel a £200 pension for life for his efforts.
