About

The Cape Town Baroque Orchestra presents an exciting programme of vocal and instrumental repertoire, celebrating the expressiveness and vitality of the music of George Frideric Handel (1685–1759).

 

The centrepiece of the programme is Handel’s Gloria, sung by Lynelle Kenned. This composition, which was probably composed very early in Handel’s career, was lost for many years and only re-discovered in 2001 in the library of the Royal Academy of Music (London). 

 

In addition to the Gloria, Ingo Müller (baroque oboe) and Annien Shaw (baroque violin) will appear as soloists in Handel’s Concerto Grosso in G major, op.3 no.3, and the Cape Town Baroque Orchestra’s Artistic Director, Erik Dippenaar, will play the Organ Concerto in F-major, op.4 no.5.
