Handel Israel in Egypt, HWV 54
The events described in Handel's 1738 oratorio Israel in Egypt form the turning point of Israel's national history. Written for double chorus, it tells the great story of the miraculous occurrences, recalled every year at Passover, that finally secured the release of the long-enslaved People of Israel from their servitude in Egypt. This grand and deeply moving work not only celebrates Jewish freedom from bondage, but encourages us to turn from our own suffering and to begin a remarkable pilgrimage toward renewed life in "the Promised Land."
