Saturday 17th June 7.30pm
St Michael & All Angels’ Church, Lower Machen
Lindsay Gray – Director
Julia Plaut – bassoon
Handel – Dixit Dominus
Bertoli – Sonata Prima for Bassoon
The highlight of this evening’s concert was a performance of one of Handel’s most highly regarded works ‘Dixit Dominus’ accompanied by the Welsh Chamber Players. Using the text of Psalm 110 Handel’s exceptional brilliance brings together chorus, soloists, strings and continuo to wonderful dramatic effect and clearly demonstrates Handel’s ability to write in the Italian style.
The concert also included a selection of other great sacred choral masterpieces including works by Arvo Part, Macmillan and Chilcott and a performance of Antonio Bertoli’s Sonata Prima performed by bassoonist Julia Plaut.
