Thursday 2nd January - Sunday 30th March
This fascinating exhibition explores the life, work and character of Handel’s great collaborator Charles Jennens of Gopsall Hall, Leicestershire.
An enigmatic character, Jennens had an enormous influence on Handel’s life and work. As librettist for the oratorios Saul and Belshazzar, he provided the composer with words that inspired some of his most challenging and exciting music. His carefully chosen scripture selection for Messiah was to inspire Handel to even greater creative heights, and together these two men created one of the greatest musical works of all time.
The exhibition will examine this relationship in detail, alongside other elements of his life as a great landowner; the builder of a fine country house with extensive grounds; a major art collector; a Christian philanthropist; a devout defender of revealed religion; an encourager of other authors and composers; a loyal friend; and a forward-looking editor of Shakespeare.

The eighteenth century was a time of change and innovation in British Society. Many Georgian innovations still affect our lives today.
