The Arts Society Sanderstead: In the wake of Handel - the impact of Handel on 300 years of British culture


Meetings commence at 10.30 am on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the United Reformed Church Hall, Sanderstead Hill, South Croydon, CR2 0HB.

Step into the wonderful world of Handel. Peter, as a musician and scholar, will take us into the life of one of the greatest composers and as a musician will perform various music. Despite his German birth and his Italian musical training, Handel remains one of the most important composers that England ever nurtured. His music had a direct influence on his musical contemporaries. His larger-than-life personality had a profound effect on the literary, visual and decorative arts as well – both in his lifetime and after his death, in 1759. This lecture assesses the cultural influences Handel had on a nation - as he once wrote, “from whom I have receiv’d so Generous a protection”.
