    A Royal Occasion – CANCELLED

    All Saints Lindfield, High Street, Lindfield

    View repertoire

    This concert features 400 years of music written for and performed at the great royal occasions – coronations, weddings and funerals. Works of grandeur, grace, solemnity and celebration, they neatly mirror the history of both the country and the family they honour.

    We are delighted to be joined by the three musicians – Elin Manahan Thomas (soprano), David Blackadder (trumpet) and Luke Bond (organ) – who so memorably performed Handel’s Eternal Source of Light Divine as Meghan Markle walked down the aisle at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle to be married to Prince Harry. Alongside this work, we will perform music by Weelkes, Brahms, Elgar, Parry and Rutter.

    Elin Manahan ThomasDavid BlackadderLuke Bond

    Elin Manahan Thomas released her début album Eternal Light in 2007 with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and has since performed at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals, and with leading orchestras and conductors.

    David Blackadder is recognised as one of the world’s leading period trumpeters. His expertise has taken him around the globe and continues to do so, as he collaborates with some of the most exciting figures in classical music.

    Luke Bond is the Assistant Director of Music of St George’s Chapel following appointments at Clifton College, The Collegiate Church of St Mary, Warwick and eight years as Assistant Director of Music at Truro Cathedral.
