Review by Grahame Whitehead for Nottingham Evening Post

Handel’s sacred oratorio Israel in Egypt is both a spiritual reflection on the Exodus story and a dramatic recreation of the accounts of the Plagues and the Red Sea crossing. Both elements were strongly conveyed under Paul Hale, who brought out the sense of excitement.

Both choir and orchestra gave superbly polished and disciplined performances, complemented by strong contributions from soloists Sarah Simmonds and Jo Boddison (soprano), Stephen Power (alto) and Richard Pratt (tenor).
