In the oratorio Israel in Egypt, against the background of biblical texts, Händel gives free rein to his wonderful musical imagination for tone painting and stirring musical expression. The extensive and enormously refined choral passages full of contrasts and vocal virtuosity are at the work’s core, and with their theatricality, they reflect the greatness of their composer as a master of opera.
