Description from the Music of the Baroque's website:

The story of a people’s triumph told in music of high drama and glorious pageantry, Judas Maccabaeus is George Frideric Handel at his heroic best, full of rousing choruses, ravishing duets, and fiery arias. Jane Glover conducts a thrilling work that rivals Messiah in choral splendor.
