On 25 May 1922 a church concert was held in the Marktkirche, featuring the Stadtsingechor and Hallische Singakademie choirs accompanied by the Stadttheater orchestra. They performed works by composers of the 16th to 18th centuries who had spent a longer or shorter period of their life working in Halle. Most of the music performed had fallen into oblivion after the death of the creators and was being performed again in a concert for the first time. Stadtsingechor zu Halle (1976 Handel Prize winners), the renowned vocal group Ensemble Polyharmonique and the Polish {oh!} Orkiestra Historyczna conducted by Clemens Flämig will be reproducing the century-old concept almost exactly in its original form with a programme of vocal and instrumental music centred on two works by G. F. Handel, the Organ Concerto in G minor, HWV 289, and the Anthem HWV 256b.

Introductory talk in German language: Prof. Dr. Erik Dremel, Theological Faculty of Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg
6pm // Handel House, Glass Hall
Admission free – unnumbered seating // Duration approx. 30 minute
