Let Me Weep (Lascia ch'io pianga) is an aria from the Handel opera Rinaldo. Aaron Hill wrote the scenario, after which Giacomo Rossi wrote the beautiful texts with Georg Friedrich Handel adding the music at a later date. According to reports, he composed the music for the complete opera in just fourteen days using many melodies from earlier works. The melody of this wonderful aria is known all over the world, and this arrangement by Jacob de Haan retains all the passion of the original.

    This is a great arrangement and of a perfect level of difficulty for a band with many young players to have the opportunity to improve their tone, phrasing and dynamics. Suits our Community Band, which has all ages and abilities, really well and it will be part of our next...

    Festival of Remembrance on November. Comes in the same category as Elgar's Nimrod.
