Handel Alexander’s Feast - In honour of St Cecilia
Subtitled “The Power of Musick”, Handel’s Alexander’s Feast was in its day rated with Messiah as one of the composer’s greatest creations. Written in honour of St Cecilia, Dryden’s storyline takes us to demonstrations of musical prowess at the Greek hero’s banquet. Expect high drama, battle cries, apparitions, and intoxication (probably amongst the tenors!). However, it is music’s patron saint who eventually steals the show, with Handel creating an array of enchanting arias and rousing choruses at every turn. The stuff of legend!
