Quote from: Abdel Ove Allhan on February 23, 2023, 07:43:08 AM"Then one day, without hesitation, Handel sat down on the throne in the royal palace of opera and, almost before anyone was aware of it, put on the king's robe. Now the robe was his and could have been for life, but as we shall see, for some mysterious reason he laid it down soon after his possession of it was recognized all over Italy, to return to the Germanic world." Paul Henry Lang
Quote from: DaveF on February 24, 2023, 01:57:23 AMI don't know the context of the quote, but surely Handel composed all his Italian operas in England and, far from quickly laying down the operatic robe, he wore it until it was threadbare, or at least until fashions had changed (and after he had composed 40-odd operas).
