- Handel Zadok the Priest
- J.S. Bach Orchestral Suite No.3 in D Major
- Handel Ode for St Cecilia’s Day

Nothing compares to the glory of the voice in the high Baroque, especially when accompanied by a sparkling orchestra. The overpowering splendour of Zadok the Priest has accompanied the coronation of every King and Queen of England since George II in 1727.

St. Cecilia is the patron saint of music, and Handel’s ode in her honour is an uninhibited celebration of the joy of music.

Between these two magnificent pieces, one of Bach’s happiest works, whose second movement has become famously known as the ‘Air on the G String’.

Free Organ Recital.

The Auckland Town Hall Organ Trust, in association with the APO, presents a 30-minute recital at 6pm prior to each Bayleys Great Classics concert in Auckland Town Hall. Each recital features a different organist playing classics from the organ repertoire.
