The Choir of St James’ and BachBand@StJames’ present a rare performance of George Frideric Handel’s beautiful L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato (‘The Cheerful, the Thoughtful, and the Moderate Man’). As Handel immersed himself in London life and moved away from writing Italian Opera to concentrate on the demands of the English audience, he combined popular poetry by John Milton with some of his most ravishing music of extraordinary freshness and beauty to express man's place in the world.

Vocal soloists include Amy Moore, soprano and Richard Butler, tenor.
