Programme Note

“Let their sweetness, through mine ear / Dissolve me into ecstasies.” To live in thoughtful moderation or to surrender to unbridled humour?

Handel’s rarely-heard work on the poetry of Milton is performed in this Saffron Hall debut by legendary Baroque director William Christie and his French ensemble Les Arts Florissants with all their celebrated flamboyance and flair.
