The Royal Choir Crescendo honored King Charles III with a performance | Kortrijk

KortrijkSint-Elisabeth Church on Camerlyncklaan in Kortrijk will host a service on Saturday 1 October in honor of the newly crowned King Charles III of the United Kingdom. Coronation hymns take center stage.

Thirty singers from the Mixed Choir break into GF Händel’s The Coronation Anthems. Many composers wrote royal songs, but Handel’s were the standard version for the coronation of a British monarch, this time King Charles III. Handel composed four hymns for the British King George II during his coronation at Westminster Abbey on 11 October 1727. Upbeat music, sometimes with a romantic touch, pulls you in and is accessible to a wide audience.

Even football fans who love music will get their money’s worth. Because the Champions League’s modern anthem, written in 1992 by English composer Tony Britton, is based on Handel’s Zadok the Priest. Crescendo’s permanent conductor, Werner Vandamme, conducts the music. Timlikt’s young musicians are in charge of the instrument. Singers and listeners wear headphones, making the evening an exceptional listening experience.

The event will begin at 8.15pm next Saturday at the Sint-Elisabeth Church. Later, a bar opens on the other side of the church at the Rizo Hotel School. Tickets cost 20 or 35 (VIP) euros.
