  • Discover how Handel’s music was created by female singers in this Handel Gallery display.

    In the eighteenth century, music performance was always a live event, and singers could build both their reputation and that of the composer through their performances. Composers depended on the competence of the performers – in particular the soloists – to interpret their music and present it to the public.

    Handel often composed with specific performers in mind, and wrote music to suit individual voices and the skills of the singer. This display brings together women for whom Handel composed, as well as those who continued to interpret and perform his music during and after his lifetime. Explore how these female singers established the composer’s music and created the legacy of his music as we know it today.

    Closed Monday.  Opens at 11.00 on Sunday

    Tickets are included in museum admission of £11.00 with concessions.  FREE for children
