Handel     Israel in Egypt

Composed in just a month, Israel in Egypt tells of the Exodus from Egypt by Moses and the Israelites. Handel vividly depicts the plagues of flies and lice, frogs, hailstones and darkness, as well as their great rejoicing at their escape from slavery. Handel borrowed a great deal of musical material from other composers (and himself), but Israel in Egypt is a masterwork that is unquestionably Handelian. The Choir is accompanied by the specialist period-instrument musicians of the Yorkshire Baroque Soloists with solo singers from the Choir.
