Handel’s Israel in Egypt performed by Three Spires Singers and Orchestra at Truro Cathedral. Time 7.30pm
Christopher Gray writes: Handel’s Israel in Egypt is perhaps most famous for its various plagues – including flies, locusts, and frogs – all perfect excuses for some wonderful choral and orchestral special effects.
As well as wanting to share the sheer rumbustious invention in Handel’s amazing musical response to the colourful text, one of the reasons I’ve chosen this particular work is that there is a great deal of virtuosic writing to challenge and delight the choir, who will be joined by a team of soloists, all specialists in this kind of music.
