Join us on Palm Sunday as we present Barthold Heinrich Brockes passion, set to music by G.F. Handel. Barthold Heinrich Brockes was an influential German poet who re-worked the traditional form of a Passion oratorio, adding reflective and descriptive poetry, sometimes of a highly-wrought and emotional kind, into the texture of his Passion. The most famous musical setting of Brockes’ text is that by George Frideric Handel, HWV 48 which premiered in Hamburg in 1719.
