Notes & Reviews:
By the late 1740s, Handel seems to have had enough of the rough male world of weapon-brandishing victors and looked more to female figures for his inspiration. His oratorio "Susanna" published in 1749 depicts an alluring and resolute young woman who has her virtue challenged and her moral strength tested.
