Ed Lyon tenor

Handel’s powerful and emotional oratorio The Triumph of Time and Truth brings together a tour-de-force of choral baroque singing with five stunning operatic soloists - here is the tale of Beauty, beguiled by Pleasure’s promise of eternal youth, cajoled by Deceit, but who is ultimately tempered by Time and Truth.

Ludus Baroque’s chamber orchestra serves up a feast of oversized violas, double basses with five strings and frets, antique pale wood oboes, ancient bassons with clattery keys, long trumpets with no valves, and horns with crooks.

From the 2012 performance of the same piece:
‘This was a very special evening of world-class music, and for one performance only. Ludus Baroque’s concerts are usually described as unmissable. I was so glad to have caught this performance.’
