The Boston Musical Intelligencer: Skillful Mischief Sets H+H Aflame

Banish sorrow, banish care, when Purcell prances with such flair! Conducted by artistic director Harry Christophers, Handel and Haydn Society filled Jordan Hall Sunday afternoon for the last of three performances featuring the 17th-century English composer. (You can read about H+H’s whirlwind there-and-back-again run-out to the Metropolitan Museum’s Temple of Dendur in the Boston Globe and watch a video of that performance—which includes only a portion of what Jordan Hall audiences enjoyed—on Facebook.)
