This regal program commemorates two beloved female patrons with J. S. Bach’s rarely heard Trauerode, written for the 1717 funeral of Christiane Eberhardine of Saxony, and Handel’s 1713 Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne. Both works call for multiple soloists, chorus, and unusually expressive orchestral forces, including two violas da gamba and lutes in the Bach cantata and an echo trumpet at the beginning of Handel’s ode. A stellar array of soloists and the award-winning UH Moores School Concert Chorale join the ensemble for some noble and hauntingly beautiful music.
