Description

Resurrection and renewal for the Easter season from the English Royal Chapel

The Royal Chapel in London was the birthplace of some of the greatest sacred music written for the Anglican Church, by composers in the employ of the Chapel who would chart the course of Western music in the 16th through the 18th centuries. Henry Purcell, George Frideric Handel, Dr. John Blow, and Pelham Humfrey (to name just a few) gained world-wide stature as musical icons, and each provided exquisite sacred music to the Royal Chapel at different points in their careers. Their music was also among the first repertoire performed in Episcopal churches in the American colonies and early United States. St. Thomas Church will reverberate with the echoes of English heritage, as the Choir and internationally-acclaimed vocal soloists are joined by an ensemble of period instrument specialists performing on authentic baroque recorders, baroque oboes, baroque violins, viols, harpsichord, and lute.
