Listen to one of the most beautiful aria's from Jephtha, 'Up the dreadful steep ascending', sung by countertenor Bejun Mehta in the role of Hamor.
ABOUT JEPHTHA Jephtha, by Georg Friedrich Händel, tells the biblical story of a commander-in-chief who had to sacrifice his daughter because of a rash promise he made to God. In the version by Händel’s librettist Thomas Morell, an angel comes between them at the last moment and the daughter’s life is spared.
