Sunday 2 December
St Machar's Cathedral
The Aberdeen Bach Choir will give their first ever performance of George
Frideric Handel’s Israel in Egypt accompanied by the Aberdeen Sinfonietta.
This oratorio, which draws directly on passages from the Old Testament, is
now a favourite worldwide, not least because of the intense and almost
operatic drama Handel brings to the music, both for the double chorus and for
the soloists. The original version of the work was in three parts: the first part
was written for the funeral of Queen Caroline and is rarely performed today.
This performance will comprise the original Parts II and III.
The soloists for this performance are:
Soprano: Elinor Rolfe Johnson
Alto: Phillipa Thomas
Tenor: Ronan Busfield
Bass: James Williams
