The Sixteen: Handel’s Jephtha

We went to this wonderful concert last month, a Christmas present from one of our children:

005a

I’m not going to attempt a critical review. My musical knowledge isn’t up to it. Suffice it to say that I must admit that at the start I was thinking, “Gosh, this looks awfully long”. In the final part I was thinking sadly, “Ah. It’s finishing soon. If only it were longer – I’d love another hour of this!”

Harry Christophers is a genius. If you get a chance to hear The Sixteen live, do it. We certainly shall.
