London Handel Festival - Programme notes

© Chris Christodoulou

We want our website to be a resource for lovers of Handel’s music from all over the world.  We are creating a library of programme notes, written for previous events in the London Handel Festival, as a free resource for soloists, ensembles, choirs and choral societies, musical directors and conductors and anyone wanting to know more about Handel.  These notes are provided free of copyright and there is no charge for them; they may be used in either printed or electronic format.

When reproducing these notes you are kindly requested to include the name of the author and the London Handel Festival as a matter of professional courtesy.  You are also asked to retain the integrity of the notes by reproducing them in their entirety without addition or reduction.  The London Handel Festival is promoted by the London Handel Society, a registered charity.  We welcome donations to enable us to carry on our artistic and charitable work of exploring lesser-known Handel repertoire, nurturing talent and making Handel’s music as accessible as possible to the widest audiences.  If you would like to make a donation to support our work, please click here – all donations, no matter what size, are welcome!
