The Brook Street Band join Saffron Walden Choral Society to perform this acclaimed work.
Handel’s oratorio Israel In Egypt is dominated by dramatic virtuosic choruses. The text follows the story of the Exodus of the Children of Israel from Egypt, with vivid evocations of hailstones, lightning, plagues of frogs, flies and lice and the crossing of the Red Sea. It culminates with the celebratory “Sing ye to the Lord; for He hath triumphed gloriously”.
This event is not recommended for children aged 7 and under.
