Sing and Discover: Saul and Samson

In this two-hour online video workshop, John Hancorn and Richard Wigmore look at the origins, cultural background and music of two of Handel's greatest oratorios, Saul and Samson, both with roots in Greek tragedy. Both works, too, had strong contemporary resonances for audiences at a turbulent period of English politics. We shall explore the music in some detail, with recorded illustrations, while participants will join in for several choruses.

Links to vocal scores will be provided by email.
