The Choir of The Queen's College, Oxford, and Instruments of Time and Truth join forces to perform three of Handel's famous coronation anthems alongside choral works by Giovanni Bononcini (1670-1747), Handel's main rival in London: there was little to separate the two in terms of public status and reputation, and they were dubbed the Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee of London’s music scene in the 1720s. Soon after his arrival in London Bononcini was afforded the honour of writing a grand orchestral anthem – When Saul was King – for the magnificent funeral of the Duke of Marlborough, included in this concert.
