Sensational Sunday - Gods and Monsters

Journey into an Arcadian world of gods and monsters with Handel's Italian cantatas, written circa 1710. Shriek with the heroine as she is abducted by the serpent, swoon with the adventurer as he discovers - and loses - his lover. Let the enchantress of music beguile and befuddle; indulge with the shepherd and Dionysus in some of Handel's most dramatic works.
