George Frideric Handel: Judas Maccabaeus

San Francisco City Chorus

JUDAS MACCABÆUS is one of Handel's most popular oratorios. It tells of the heroic leadership of Judas Maccabaeus in the resistance to Greek domination of Judea circa 170–160 BC, which forms part of the origin story of Hanukkah. Handel's Judas Maccabaeus is an intense drama of tragedy, lament, hope, and victory, described in a vivid contrast of choruses and arias. Larry Marietta, conductor, John RS Walko, organ, vocal soloists, baroque orchestra.
