Handel: Roman Connections: Albion Baroque
Albion Baroque returns with a programme of lively choral music featuring Handel's Dixit Dominus and Caldara's Missa Dolorosa.
The young Handel moved to Italy in 1707 to learn the art of Italian opera, and spent most of his time in Rome, where he also provided cantatas and other sacred works for the enjoyment of his patrons. In Rome, Handel was a guest at Francesco Maria Ruspoli's palace between 1707-9, time during which he was appointed "kapellmeister". Handel would be succeeded in this position by another great composer amongst his contemporaries, Antonio Caldara. Both Handel and Caldara later found fortune outside of Italy: Handel in London, and Caldara in Vienna, working for the Emperor Charles VI.
