Handel Chamber Duets, 'A mirarvi io son intento,' HWV 178, 'No, Di Voi Non Vò Fidarmi’ HWV 189, 'Se tu non lasci amore', HWV 193, ‘Tanti Strali al sen mi scocchi' HWV 197

Percival Cantata for Soprano and continuo, ‘Dove sei dolce mi vita’

Handel's youthful trips to Italy provided an unlimited source of inspiration which fuelled the composer throughout his working life. Here we explore some of his stunning early Italian duets with thematic links to Messiah. Our programme also features Philip Percival's only surviving cantata, 'Dove sei dolce mia vita'. Percival was the Director of the Irish State Music, responsible for the high standard of music at Dublin Castle in the early 18th century and was a close personal friend of Handel. Approximate Duration: 1 hour

The Dublin HandelFest 2022 is presented in partnership with the OPW - Office of Public Works, and receives support from Arts Council Ireland.
