Our lecture on 13th September is ‘Getting the English to Sing’. The speaker is Sarah Lenton.
Sarah say ” Are the English Musical? Can they sing? Handel had his doubts – but in the course of his career he came to recognise some outstanding singers and created a new musical genre just for them. This lecture explores the way in which the Handelian oratorio swept the country, and became the bedrock of there English choral tradition.”
