During Handel’s time in London, opera was a popular treasuretrove of themes for domestic music-making. It was customary, for instance, that the young ladies of high society practised harpsichord arrangements at home – selected excerpts without excessive love and passion, in line with the current notions of morality and propriety. Dichos Diabolos picks up on this tradition, and based on Handel’s Il Floridante presents a domestic-music evening of the kind that might have taken place in Handel’s own day.
