Handel's Dixit Dominus is a baroque masterpiece, famous for its virtuosic and brilliant writing.  We pair it with a fascinating work by Benjamin Britten The Company of Heaven.  Written for chorus, string orchestra, narrator and soloists, it shows Britten's theatrical genius and innovative use of resources.
