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!
