Descrizione


Dopo la morte di Handel il suo giovane assistente, John Christopher Smith, continuò la tradizione dell'Oratorio scrivendo nuovi brani e facendo uso del materiale manoscritto ereditato dal suo maestro. Gideon vide la luce nel 1969 (10 anni dopo la morte di Handel) con un libretto di uno dei primi collaboratori di Handel, Thomas Morell, riutilizzando parecchio materiale sacro e profano e con l'aggiunta di nuovi elementi di Smith.
