About This Show

Celebrated countertenor Reginald Mobley wields a voice that is “pure of tone, immaculate in his articulation” (The Herald) in a program of powerfully moving arias by Handel. The chorus shines in Purcell’s exquisite “Hear my prayer, O Lord,” “Welcome to all the Pleasures,” and music from Handel’s oratorio Belshazzar. J. S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 and lively dances William Croft composed for The Comedy call’d the Funeral complete this evening of high-spirited drama.
