Handel's La Resurrezione

In a performance given at the 2010 Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music, Paul McCreesh conducts the Gabrieli Consort and Players in Handel's Easter oratorio La Resurrezione.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Handel's Easter oratorio La Resurrezione: Gabrieli Consort & Players conducted by Paul McCreesh, from the Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music.
Handel's scintillating Easter oratorio La Resurrezione is a product of his youthful years in Italy, an intensely creative period for him when he forged the style that would serve him for the next 40 years. Like many before and after, he also discovered that Italy could teach him all he needed to know about singing and singers.
