Handel Choir of Baltimore: Anglo Meets Saxon Sunday Feb. 12, 2012
Anglo Meets Saxon in the second of Handel Choir's three 2011-2012 subscription concerts: music of Britten, Walton, Bruckner, Rheinberger, Brahms and Mendelssohn.

Sunday February 12, 2012
3 p.m.
St. Ignatius Church, 740 N. Calvert Street in Baltimore (Mount Vernon) 21202

Handel Choir of Baltimore
Chandos Singers
Timothy Murphy, organ

Melinda O'Neal, conductor

Handel was born in what is now Germany and emigrated to England at the age of 25. In this concert, we pair choral works by 20th-century British composers Britten and Walton with music by 19th-century German composers Mendelssohn, Rheinberger and Brahms to demonstrate Handel's far-reaching influence.

Organist Timothy Murphy showcases the magnificent and newly renovated organ at St. Ignatius Church with Rheinberger's Organ Sonata No. 4 in A minor, Op. 98. Murphy also joins the Choir for Britten's magical cantata on the theme of innocence, "Rejoice in the Lamb."

Free lecture by the Peabody Conservatory Department of Musicology's Richard Giarusso one hour before the performance.
