La Resurrezione is one of Handel's most original, spectacular and richly orchestrated oratorios. Recorders, trumpet, and a viola da gamba are all required, additional to the usual strings and woodwind. Fiery interchanges abound between Lucifer and an Angel with appropriately thrilling musical effects. The opening arresting aria sung by the Angel is breathtaking in its demands of the singer and orchestra. Florid, almost never-ending roulades seemingly defy the very capabilities of the human voice as the Angel demands to be let into the gates of Hell. Lucifer responds by calling up the furies of Hell in retaliation. Mary Magdelene, Mary Cleopus and St John all have exquisite arias of anguish as they lament the death of Christ. The oratorio ends with a delightfully happy chorus as Jesus appears to Mary Magdelene and they learn of his resurrection.

Soloists - Gina Sanders, Na Young Kim, Elisha Fa'i-Hulton, Iain Tetley, Chalium Poppy.

Director - Robert Howell
