We open love:Handel 2023 with a thrilling programme of arias composed by Handel for his favourite tenor, the fabulous John Beard, who dominated the London musical landscape during Handel’s time.

George Frideric Handel 1685-1759
Love in her eyes sits playing (Acis and Galatea, HWV 49)
Meine Seele hört im Sehen HWV 207
Descend kind pity (Theodora, HWV 68)
Waft her angels (Jephtha, HWV 70)
Un momento di contento (Alcina, HWV 34)
Die ihr aus dunkeln Grüften HWV 208
Thus when the sun (Samson, HWV 57)
Total Eclipse (Samson, HWV 57)
Where ‘ere you walk (Semele, 58)

Music for Mr Beard sets the scene for an action-packed festival weekend packed with stunning music, colourful instrumentation and guest appearances by some of our favourite musical friends.
