Handel's Chandos Anthems from Cannons

As part of the London Handel Festival, Adrian Butterfield conducts three of Handel's Chandos Anthems at the church on the Cannons Estate, home to James Brydges, Duke of Chandos.

As part of the 2017 London Handel Festival, Adrian Butterfield conducts three of Handel's Chandos Anthems at the church on the Cannons Estate, once home to the financially incontinent James Brydges, Duke of Chandos.
Handel spent about a year in 1717-18 in residence at Cannons where the Duke spared no expense in commissioning some of the best Italian painters of the day to redecorate the church and Grinling Gibbons to carve the case on the organ. Alas, like many of his peers, the Duke was undone by the South Sea Bubble.
