An intimate recital reveals little-known links between Bach and Handel.

The pious poetry of Hamburg senator Barthold Heinrich Brockes had far-reaching influence. Our programme explores how his poetry was expressed by George Frederic Handel, and how the Brockes-Handel combination itself combined to provide decisive influence on the St John Passion of J.S. Bach.
