More Info: Handel’s monumental Coronation Anthems, composed in 1727 for King George II and Queen Caroline of England, bring an exciting, regal note to Seraphic Fire’s season. Continuing in the same Royal vein, Seraphic Fire will complete this program with the Florida premiere of Marc Antoine Charpentier’s triumphant Te Deum, a masterwork of the French Baroque style. The singers of Seraphic Fire will be joined by the lauded New York-based period instrument ensemble, The Sebastians, to perform these exquisite pieces.
