Handel spent about a year in 1717-18 in residence at the estate of Cannons, the home of James Brydges, Duke of Chandos, who was a major patron of the composer. St Lawrence, Whitchurch, was on the estate and was refurbished by Brydges, commissioning some of the best Italian painters of the day to redecorate the ceiling and building a gallery at the west end. Our Associate Director, Adrian Butterfield, will complete his cycle of the Chandos Anthems at the church for which they were written with Nos. 3, 5a and 6a, based on settings of the Psalms.

The London Handel Orchestra will be joined by internationally acclaimed tenor Charles Daniels and two past finalists in the Handel Singing Competition, soprano Grace Davidson and bass-baritone Edward Grint, all familiar faces to Festival audiences.

Pre-performance talk by Stuart Cawthorne from the church (free admission) from 6.15 - 6:45pm
