Prom 8 - Handel - Judas Maccabaeus archivePart of the BBC Proms. Composed in the wake of the last pitched battle fought on British soil - the putting-down at Culloden of the 1745 Jacobite rebellion - Handel's oratorio recounts a tale of military prowess on the part of the Israelites of biblical times, with whom Protestant England was keen to identify. Under the direction of Laurence Cummings - Music Director of the Handel festivals in London and Gottingen - the distinguished line-up of soloists is headed by John Mark Ainsley, a stylish and much-admired Handelian, here tackling a role long considered the pinnacle of the tenor repertoire. There will be one interval. Finish time: approx. 22:20
Performers John Mark Ainsley (Judas Maccabaeus), Christopher Purves (Simon/Eupolemus), Rosemary Joshua (Israelitish Woman), Christine Rice (Israelitish Man), Tim Mead (Israelitish Messenger/Israelitish Priest).
Company Choir of the Enlightenment. Company Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Director Laurence Cummings.
