Handel's own parish church, St. George's Church, Hanover Square, London, was the only place to be last night, the 250th anniversary of the composer's death. St. George's is one of the few performing interiors left in London which are associated with the composer and, as such, is the venue for the London Handel Festival. Last night the festival celebrated the end of the 2009 festival and the composer's anniversary with a tremendous performance of Jephtha with John Mark Ainsley in the title role. A full review will appear shortly
