The Queen’s Coronation Music

The Friends of Holy Trinity Cathedral have announced that they will be holding a concert of the music played at the Queen’s Corononation for Queen’s Birthday Weekend. The Concert will be staged at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell on Tuesday May 29th this year. The proceeds from the concert will go to the Friends of Holy Trinity Cathedral to assist in completing the Cathedral.

The Auckland Choral Society, the University Singers (conductor Karen Grylls) and the Holy Trinity Cathedral Choir (conductor Peter de Blois) will all perform. The Auckland Symphony Orchestra (conductor Gary Daverne) and organist James Tibbles will accompany the choirs under the baton of Peter Watts, the musical director of the Auckland Choral Society.

The music of Walton, Gibbons, Parry, Handel, Howells & Vaughan Williams will be featured. The programme will showcase some of the greatest Choral and orchestral music ever written.

Organiser and Spokesperson Angus Ogilvie said “the programme will evoke something of the unique spirit of that momentous service held at Westminster Abbey nearly fifty years ago. Many of the pieces are regarded as choral masterpieces and are seldom performed live except for ceremonial occasions. This concert will be a feast for lovers of Choral music”.

The organisers are also pleased to announce that one of the priests who assisted at the Coronation in Westminster Abbey on 2nd June, 1953 will be present. The Reverend Canon Howard Hollis will be the narrator at the concert. He is currently attached to Saint Paul’s Cathedral, Melbourne.

Tickets for the concert are available from the Cathedral Office, Saint Stephen’s House, Parnell or from Robyn Bridgman on 524 0241.
