Sit back and relax and enjoy the Exit Music that was chosen by Martin for the end of our Church Service for Palm Sunday

It is a particularly beautiful piece meaning a lot to many people.  It is by George Frederic Handel 1685-1759. It was written in 1738 as part of his opera Serse in 1738.The text of the song is as follows:
Never was a shade
 any plant
 and more lovely 
or more sweet. 
This refers to the shade given by her beloved plane tree.Unfortunately the opera Serse was a commercial failure being withdrawn after just 5 performances. The public interest in Italian opera was waning. Handel was to soon swap from opera to oratorios (no acting and based on Christian topics). 1741 saw Handel's enormously successful Messiah was written and first performed in a music hall in Dublin.
