Judith, or The Regeneration of Manasseh
An Oratorio in Two Acts with an Introduction and an Intermezzo
for Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass Soli, Chorus, and Orchestra
On a libretto by the composer with additions from the Apocrypha
Recorded after the first London performance for over 130 years, Parry’s neglected oratorio here appears on disc for the very first time. Having been commissioned by the Birmingham Festival, Parry decided to combine the Old Testament stories of Manasseh and Judith. A good deal of the libretto was provided by Parry himself, who took other texts from the biblical books of Isaiah, Psalms, and Judith. Having originally conceived the work in four acts, Parry condensed it into two. Judith was premiered by Richter in Birmingham in August 1888, and it consolidated Parry’s reputation as a choral composer, numerous performances following in Edinburgh and in London. Although popular in his lifetime, Judith fell into obscurity after Parry’s death.

Recording: Church of St Jude-on-the-Hill, Hampstead Garden Suburb, London NW11; 25 – 27 April 2019. Recorded in SURROUND SOUND and will be released on Hybrid SACD.
