Jonathan Cohen by Marco Borggreve, Joélle Harvey by Arielle Doneson
Since its formation in 2010, Arcangelo has risen to the top ranks of period instrument ensembles. For this program, Arcangelo performs instrumental works by Bach and Buxtehude, as well as Handel’s rarely heard Nine German Arias. Handel wrote little in his native German, but his friend the poet Barthold Heinrich Brockes—with whom he shared religious beliefs—wrote sacred texts that the composer set to some of his most luscious melodies. While the arias are vocally splendid and have much of the expressive power of Handel’s operas, they also boast many beautiful passages for solo instruments.

Handel’s German Arias 

The nine arias Handel set to the poetry of his friend Barthold Heinrich Brockes are among the few works in his native German. Handel shared religious views with Brockes, and the arias celebrate the goodness of the almighty as evidenced in the beauty of creation. Handel infuses the arias with some of his most splendid melodies and also delights in word painting where the music vividly depicts flowing water, the soul’s heavenward ascent, and more.
