Sound the Trumpet!

Whats On

The Bois perform both sacred and secular music with a royal connection. The two main works are the Birthday Ode to Queen Mary by Henry Purcell and Mozart’s most popular choral work, his Coronation Mass in C. The concert also includes works by Haydn and Tavener and a selection of well-known classics by Handel including his Water Music Suite in D and the Arrival of the Queen of Sheba.

The choir will be joined by a fabulous quartet of soloists and orchestra.
