By George! Handel's Music for Royal OccasionsOn the 300th anniversary of the coronation of George I, the first king from the House of Hanover, By George! Handel's Music for Royal Occasions explores composer George Frederic Handel and his music for royal occasions. No composer has been more closely associated with the British than Handel, whose anthem Zadok the Priest has been performed at every coronation since that of George II in 1727, and Water Music was performed in 2012 on the River Thames for the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. The exhibition features treasures from the Foundling Museum's Gerald Coke Handel Collection as well as loans from the British Library, National Portrait Gallery and British Museum and never before seen items from the archives of Westminster Abbey.

 

About The Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum is one of London's real hidden treasures. Originally established in 1739 as a hospital which looked after abandoned children, the museum now tells their story. Using oral testimony, original artefacts and photographs, their history is explored and compared to the lives of contemporary children. More about The Foundling Museum
