Judas Maccabaeus – St. Stephen’s, Charleston
December 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm$20
Judas Maccabaeus is an oratorio in three parts, featuring North Carolina Baroque Orchestra, The King's Counterpoint Choir, and soloists.
Composed in 1746, Judas Maccabaeus was one of Handel's most popular oratorios. Based on the deuterocanonical book I Maccabees, this magnificent work follows the story of Judas Maccabaeus and struggle and ultimate victory of the Jewish people over the oppression of the Seleucid Empire - from the mourning of the fallen leader Matthathias to the trimphant rise of Judas Maccabaeus and the alliance with Rome that brings peace, Judas Maccabaeus is filled from beginning to end with beautiful music, wonderful characters, and stirring choruses. The North Carolina Baroque Orchestra and The King's Counterpoint Choir.
