Salisbury Chamber Chorus – Bach’s ‘Magnificat’ & Handel’s ‘Dixit Dominus’

Salisbury Chamber Chorus under director Simon McEnery bring their inimitable sound to two classics of the Baroque era, Bach’s Magnificat and Handel’s Dixit DominusThe Chorus will be joined by regular pianist Peter Toye, with cellist Bryony Moody and oboist Rosalie Watson. Both pieces are thrilling examples of Baroque dynamism and energy, with some exquisite solos and ensembles, taken by members of the Chorus. (Salisbury Chamber Chorus is made up of singers from Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset, many of whom participate in festivals, opera productions, run choirs of their own, or give solo recitals themselves.) The concert takes place in the perfect surroundings of Wilton’s beautiful and atmospheric Italianate Church.

The 40-strong Salisbury Chamber Chorus is an ensemble with a difference. Spanning the operatic and choral repertoires, its hallmark is a committed, full-bodied sound that brings a varied programme of music excitingly to life. Our concerts take place in Salisbury and further afield. Imaginative programming spins audiences from evenings of opera (Wagner and Puccini, for example) to new works (McEnery’s Space Time Matter Energy), via choral classics (Verdi's Requiem) and charity fundraisers (A German Christmas).
