Mallorca Classics: Judas Maccabaeus, Palma Cathedral

Gothic meets Baroque tomorrow evening (28th September) when Handel's choral work

Gothic meets Baroque tomorrow evening (28th September) when Handel's choral work Judas Maccabaeus is performed under the magnificent arches and columns of Palma's La Seu Cathedral. The imposing architecture and fantastic
acoustics of the cathedral provide an inspiring, yet fitting backdrop for this tale of struggle against religious intolerance in ancient Judea.

The choir and orchestra of the British national charity 'Sing for Pleasure' under the direction of Mavinder Rattan will be performing the oratorio, starting at 20.30. The charity's aim is to
provide singing opportunities for adults and children at all levels and from all backgrounds both nationally and internationally and its choir has sung in prestigious venues in Rome, Venice and
many other places around Europe.

British TV viewers will know Manvinder Rattan from the BBC2 show, The Choir: Sing While You Work, in which he was one of the judges giving his verdict on choirs formed by ordinary people in their
workplaces.

It promises to be a great occasion and is totally FREE to enter, so for some great music, a spectacular setting and not costing one cent, get along there on Saturday night!
