About

Armonico Consort return to Signum with a collection of Handel arias, performed by leading countertenor William Towers.

A noted soloist in both opera and oratorio, the programme is taken from roles which Towers has sung across his career in various productions across the globe.

“It is the life-affirming, live-giving aspect of Handel that I’m aiming to celebrate. So frequently his operas reveal their most devastatingly beautiful and uplifting music when life is at its darkest. Here the arias shine brightest, here we find Radamisto’s ‘Ombra cara’ and the boundlessly optimistic ‘Dopo l’orrore’, looking out beyond the darkest clouds to the faint glimmer of a dawning hope. This is the uncrushable, indomitable spirit that lies in all of us ... We just need to take the time to listen.” – William Towers
