Calder Consort

Ornament of the Earth

Ornament of the Earth

Join the Calder Consort for their Liverpool debut performance as a baroque ensemble, playing one of G.F. Handel's hidden gems, HWV 202-210 (the Nine German Arias) and A. Corelli’s Violin Sonata No.10 from Op.5. Handel composed very little music using text from his native German tongue. The most notable example was his Nine German Arias using text from the poetry (Early Pleasure in God) by Barthold Heinrich Brockes, and setting them for soprano, violin and basso continuo (cello and organ). The concert's title "Ornament of the Earth" comes from the first line of G.F. Handel's aria 'Flammende Rose, Zierde der Erden' HWV 210, translating as 'Flaming rose, ornament of the earth'.
