The Choir of St. Luke in the Fields, under the direction of David Shuler, with an ensemble of period instruments

Handel’s Esther has long enjoyed the cachet for being the first English Oratorio, Though this is Handel's first oratorio, it already demonstrates Handel's ability to create an enormous variety of orchestral color and to bring to life compelling drama in music. Recounting the story of Esther and Haman from the Hebrew Scriptures, the work incorporates elements of masque, pastoral and opera.
