Following its triumphant Saffron Hall debut in 2016 with Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius, Cambridge University Symphony Chorus returns to present Handel’s monumental oratorio Israel in Egypt. Borrowing unashamedly from his own work, and parodying many other composers along the way, Handel sets out the great biblical story of the Israelites’ delivery from captivity in Egypt, led by Moses through a divided Red Sea after plagues of insects, disease and death. Under the direction of Richard Wilberforce, the Chorus is delighted to be collaborating once again with the East Anglia Chamber Orchestra, and welcomes a fine array of soloists to Saffron Hall.
