A rare opportunity to hear one of Handel’s early oratorios, written around 1715–16, from the world-renowned Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, joining forces with one of the finest period instrument orchestras in the world, The Hanover Band. Nicknamed after its librettist, German poet Barthold Heinrich Brockes, the work is the only German-language oratorio from Handel’s pen and served as a model for Bach’s St John Passion.
