Programme Note

The Sixteen present the most popular dramatic work of Handel’s lifetime; a tale of love, tragedy and liberation, with the eternal love between mortal shepherd Acis and goddess Galatea doomed by the jealous cyclops Polyphemus. Staying true to the premiere in 1718, this intimate concert performance features a select group of five singers, and nine instrumentalists from The Orchestra of The Sixteen.

‘Christophers uses stylish Handelians and consort singers who blend to perfection in this intimate chamber performance.’ The Sunday Times
