Aberdeen Bach Choir Concert

  • Music, Classical


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
