Händel: Saul. carus music

Georg Friedrich Händel

Saul

Oratorio

HWV 53, 1739

Description

Saul is one of the most dramatic of Handel’s oratorios. Unlike some of his other oratorios, its thrilling drama reveals a close affinity to opera of the time. The chorus is used for the first time as a central component of a dramatic plot, but also assumes a commenting function, as in Greek tragedy. Therefore quite different expressive styles are required: sometimes majestic, sometimes lamenting or dance-like – there is no time to learn the notes in rehearsals!
