Whatever we wake up to on Friday morning what better way is there to wipe away the #Election2019 chaos than Handel's #Messiah. Everyone welcome whatever your political affiliation and under 30's can come for free! https://t.co/ieRa1KD2dp

Next up for us we jump back 300 years to possibly the greatest choral work of all time. We'll be joined by @TheHanoverBand to sing J. S. Bach's B Minor Mass on 14th March @WinCathedral

It worries me that, culturally, we are in a period of deep forgetting - not knowing or caring what has gone before us. People like Clive James and Jonathan Miller knew their history, and got at the roots of where we came from, railing against ignorance of all kinds #RIP

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.
