Ashley Grote, the Cathedral's master of music and who is conducting the concert, said: "I first performed Israel in Egypt as a boy chorister and am tremendously excited to be conducting this amazing piece here in Norwich. It is without doubt one of Handel's most thrilling works."
Israel in Egypt was first performed in London's King's Theatre in 1739 and was inspired by passages from the Old Testament, mainly from Exodus and the Psalms.
Handel's Israel in Egypt is at Norwich Cathedral on Saturday 16 November at 7.30pm.
