Israel in Eqypt (excerpts) / G.F. Handel

Congregation Adath Jeshurun / $20 / 105 min / 3:00 pm
2401 Woodbourne Avenue

Pre-concert program:  2:15 pm

To Be Certain of the Dawn is a memorial oratorio originally commissioned in 2005 as a commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the freeing of Holocaust survivors. Our performance honors the 70th anniversary of that event. This is a lyrical and moving work that includes cantor, soloists, and a children's chorus in addition to a mixed chorus and orchestra. It raises eternal questions of humanity, tolerance and respect while cautioning that the prevention of such horrors rests in the hands of today's youth.

Handel's magnificent oratorio, Israel in Egypt, is characterized by virtuosic choruses that fully exploit his lavish and sophisticated aural imagery.  It is a dramatic telling of struggle and freedom through the Exodus as reflected in biblical texts.

Coronation Anthems / G.F. Handel

Te Deum in C major / F.J. Haydn.

Organ Concerto in F major / G.F. Handel
      Dr. Phillip Brisson
, organist

Calvary Episcopal Church / $20 / 70 min / 3:00 pm
821 S. 4th Street

Pre-concert program:  2:15 pm

The four Coronation Anthems were composed by Handel in 1727 for the coronation of King George II. The anthems feature robust orchestration and are often used in royal weddings, coronations, and film.

Te Deum is a magnificent choral drama that was commissioned by Empress Marie Therese, the wife of Franz I of Austria.  It features engaging interplay between the chorus and orchestra along with stunning harmonies.

Handel's Organ Concerto in F major was among six organ concertos written as interludes in performances of oratorios.  Because of its engaging, charming, and vigorous music, the F major has become the most popular of his organ concertos.
