One of Handel's greatest oratorios, this magnificent work features a series of superb choral pieces — ranging in mood and technique from grim intensity to tender humility, from simple narrative to grandiose jubilation. Israel in Egypt portrays the tribulations of the Jews, the plagues of Egypt, and related Biblical events in a spellbinding demonstration of the composer's influential use of the chorus as a dramatic medium. Reprinted from the authoritative Breitkopf & Härtel edition. Preface. Full contents in English and German.
