Handel' oratorio Israel in Egypt was written three years before the Messiah and, like the Messiah, is somewhat atypical of the composer' oratorios.

Scored for double chorus and an orchestra using trombones, trumpets, timpani, woodwinds and strings4/4(1). Composed between October 1, and November 1, and premiered in London the following year, "Israel in Egypt" is one of only two Handel oratorios with texts taken directly from the Bible; other texts were gleaned from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer/5(26).

The point is made admirably in the short but sensible liner-note with this set - Italian opera was a busted flush, and Handel was experimenting with different ideas in the field of oratorio, producing in Israel in Egypt an idea of the utmost audacity, namely a work that would exploit to the utmost his genius as a composer for chorus, and exploit it in three highly contrasted sections.5/5(11).

So, if I recall, does Percy Young in his Master Musicians book on Handel; and so, very significantly, does Tovey.

Writing during the depth of the reaction against Handel, Tovey finds Israel in Egypt to be a patchy and incoherent oratorio, a thing of peaks and troughs making an unconvincing and abrupt start with no overture/5(25). Handel's oratorio chorus also participates in the action ("Judas Maccabaeus"), is an element in incidental scenes ("Solomon"), and even narrates ("Israel in Egypt").

Pictorial and affective musical symbolism is one of the most conspicuous and endearing features of Handel's choral writing.

Presented as the second installment of the Los Angeles Master Chorale’s Hidden Handel project, this vibrant vocal showcase will be enhanced by Syrian Armenian visual. Very few people have ever heard George Frideric Handel's sacred oratorio Israel in Egypt in anything like the form in which he first composed it.

The ten plagues said to have been the scourge of Egypt are the story’s impetus for the release of the Hebrew slaves from bondage and are a central focus of Handel’s oratorio “Israel in Egypt.

Published on William Christie directs the Choir and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in a historically-informed performance of Georg Friedrich Handel's oratorio Israel in .Today, however, when scarcely a Handel oratorio remains unrecorded and works like Jephtha, Theodora and Solomon have become more familiar, it is easier to spot Israel in Egypt for the experimental one-off that it is, since no other oratorio shows such a heavy imbalance in favour of choruses over arias and recitatives.
