We are delighted to be part of the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2023 and are raising funds to record a new album combining baroque musical masterpieces with works of art. We are exploring Handel’s music and lesser known gems of eighteenth – century music and connecting the music to themes in genre and historical paintings. This recording with Signum Records will involve our outstanding team of singers, vocal consort, instrumentalists, students and musicologists and art historians. www.donate.biggive.org
Every donation makes a huge difference to us and goes towards artist’s fees helping us to rediscover long-lost manuscripts and works of art to create this new album which will be performed by our period instrumentalists.
We also have a fundraiser ‘Raise the Roof’ – Handel Recordings to raise £10,000 for recordings, streamed performances and our Handelians Educational scheme. Please support us if you can: www.gofundme.com
All of our Albums are available here from: London Early Opera Archives – Signum Records
