Catch the real beauty of Handel choral rarities this August Bank Holiday Monday at the historic Fulneck Moravian Church in Pudsey.
Acclaimed Leeds-based chamber choir St Peter’s Singers are joined by Principals of the National Festival Orchestra, organist Alan Horsey and soloists Claire Strafford, Lucy Appleyard, Peter Condry and Quentin Brown.
The conductor is Dr Simon Lindley, music director of St Peter’s Singers since the choir’s foundation in 1977. Dr Lindley lives in Fulneck and has been Master of the Music and organist of Leeds Minster from April 1975. He is due to retire next month.
The music of the four works in this years Fulneck Baroque Choral Concert on Monday, 29 August, includes some choruses and solos from Handel’s immortal Messiah recycled for use in these anthems of the 1740s:
Nisi Dominus 
I will magnify Thee, O God, my King 
O praise the Lord with one consent [1717/18]
Anthem on the Peace 
The concert starts at 4pm.
Admission is free on the day, with a retiring collection.
