Messiah: He Shall Feed His Flock Like a Shepherd (Handel)

June 1st, 2009 Comments off

Movement 20 in Handel’s Messiah is a gentle, flowing double aria for alto and soprano. The text describes how Jesus will protect his people. The alto sings the first half in F, and then the soprano takes over in Bb for the second half. Simple and beautiful. Could be done by one singer with a large range, but really perfect to feature two.

Messiah: Rejoice Greatly, O Daughter of Zion (Handel)

April 21st, 2009 Comments off

Movement 18 of Handel’s Messiah is a dramatic and involved aria for soprano. A fast major-key beginning and end require virtuosic singing, and the slow minor-key middle section gives the singer lots of room to be expressive. Orchestral direction reflects the London Philharmonic Orchestra recording.
