By George! Handel’s Music for Royal Occasions

Things to do

The German born composer’s anthem Zadok the Priest has been performed at every coronation since that of King George II in 1727 and his Water Music was performed on the River Thames in the 2012 Diamond Jubilee celebrations. This exhibition explores Handel and his music for royal occasions drawing on the Foundling Museum's Gerald Coke Handel Collection and loans from the British Library, Lambeth Palace and the National Portrait Gallery.
