Notes & Reviews:

It's not surprising that 'Isreal in Egypt' is much-performed. Hailstones and lightning, buzzing flies and leaping frogs, are all brilliantly evoked for choir and orchestra in a series of incisive choruses leading us excitedly through the plagues of Egypt and the crossing of the Red Sea as we follow Moses and the Children of Isreal through the story of the Exodus. The epic nature of the story could not be more suited to Handel's genius for story-telling and drama.
