A joyous Messiah tonight in Arundel beautifully performed by @TheHanoverBand @ericaeloff @BradSmithTenor @WhackemnSloggem @MisterGravel 🙏👏👏👏👏

Still buzzing from a mind-blowingly exciting performance of Handel’s #Messiah by @TheHanoverBand at St George’s Church, Brighton earlier this evening. It was as if I was hearing it for the first time. And such wonderful connection between performers and audience. Hallelujah!

Whether you're singing #hallelujah or feel that "we like sheep have gone astray" why not forget about it and come and listen to our #Messiah? Under 30s free! #Handel

The Hanover Band

HANOVER (Not Hannover; Germany) In terms of British history the majority of the music we play is from the Hanoverian period. Hanover also refers to Hanover Square in London, where Haydn performed his symphonies and arias in the Salomon Concerts in the 1790’s.

BAND (ref: The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians)
‘An instrumental ensemble, larger than a chamber ensemble. Thus the ’24 violins’ of Louis XIV were called ‘la grande bande’ to distinguish them from Lully’s ‘petits violons’, and Charles II’s similar ensemble was known as ‘the King’s Band’. By extension, ‘band’ came to mean an orchestra in colloquial British usage’.

THE HANOVER BAND a period name for a period orchestra.
