About

Experience two grand classics, alive with all the excitement and verve of their very first performances. Thrill to one of Haydn’s masterful ‘London’ symphonies that wowed England’s capital – the smash hit ‘Military’, so-called for intense depictions of the clash of arms and ferocious roar of war. In the epic Nelson Mass Handel and Haydn Society’s magnificent chorus and soloists join the orchestra in this homage to the heroic admiral who helped to vanquish Napoleon.

“Christophers once again demonstrates that his 203-year old band are in rude health.” – Gramophone (COR16168)

“What Harry is particularly good at is nurturing the natural beauty of the instruments and voices and, indeed, acoustic that are in front of him. It’s very handsome.” –  BBC Radio 3 Record Review (COR16176)

Recorded live at Symphony Hall, Boston
