George Frideric Handel: Nisi Dominus
Antonio Montanari: Violin Concerto in A (Op.1, No.1)
J.S.Bach: Christ lag in Todesbanden (BWV 4)
George Frideric Handel: Dixit Dominus

In 1707 both G.F. Handel and J.S. Bach were 22 years old, and they were rapidly expanding their musical horizons. Handel travelled to Rome where his virtuoso keyboard performances attracted the attention of influential patrons. For Cardinal Colonna he produced two stunning large-scale masterpieces – the grandiose Dixit Dominus and the exquisite Nisi Dominus, first performed in July 1707. Antonio Montanari, who shared Colonna as a patron and was violinist in Handel’s orchestra in Rome, wrote the Violin concerto which will serve as a virtuoso amuse-oreille. Bach’s travels were less distant – he moved within Germany – but his setting of Luther’s hymn Christ lag in Todesbanden bears the hallmark of genius. The chorale cantata, written for his application as organist in Mühlhausen, is described as Bach’s first-known attempt at painting narrative in music. Orlando Chamber Choir joins forces with five outstanding soloists and the International Baroque Players to perform these exciting and innovative young composers’ works.

Britten: War Requiem


Britten uses vast forces – a full symphony orchestra and chorus, a chamber orchestra, three soloists and boys’ choir – and a powerful synthesis of Wilfred Owen’s poetry and the traditional Latin Requiem Mass to create a biting commentary on the futility of war fitting for Remembrance weekend in the centenary year of the start of the Great War. The Newcastle Bach Choir is joined by young musicians from Newcastle University, world-renowned baritone Sir Thomas Allen, Newcastle alumnus Robert Murray and Samling Scholar Kate Valentine.
