FESTIVAL CHOIR
ROY RASHBROOK: Conductor
DALE CHAMBERS: Leader, Strings and Continuo

The centrepiece of this concert is Handel’s thrilling ‘Dixit Dominus’, one of his finest works, scored for five solo singers, chorus and instruments and written during his youthful years in Italy. Dating from 1707, it is famous for establishing the reputation of the 22-year-old Mr Handel as a dazzling new composer.


The story of Handel

For the Festival Choir, we have brought together an ensemble of top professionals, conducted by tenor Roy Rashbrook,  who has performed with some of Britain’s leading orchestras and choirs including The King’s Consort, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the City of London Sinfonia, the London Mozart Players and the London Philharmonic Choir.

Roy, who lives in Woking and also teaches, is a member of the choirs of Saint Paul’s Cathedral and The King’s Consort, as well as being conductor of the Guildford-based Chantry Singers and musical director of Hart Voices of Fleet.
