Program Notes

Judas Maccabaeus (HWV 63) is an oratorio in three acts composed in 1746 by George Frideric Handel based on a libretto written by Thomas Morell. The oratorio was devised as a compliment to the victorious Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland upon his return from the Battle of Culloden.

Arm, Arm, Ye Brave was a call to arms by Simon, brother of Judas Maccabaeus and son of Mattathias, to restore the faith of the people upon the death of Mattathias, who had been their leader.
