eorg Frederic Handel composed this oratorio in 1746, five years after he wrote the more famous oratorio Messiah. This piece is based on the period when Judea was occupied by a dynasty of Hellenist kings who set about the destruction of the Jewish religion. The adherence to all Jewish law was forbidden. The story unfolds with the solos and choruses dramatizing the fight of the Maccabees against – and their eventual victory over – the occupying kings. The stunning music includes famous choruses, most notably the "Hallelujah, Amen." You are sure to be moved by the magnificent music of this Baroque master.
