Helen Dymond

Helen Dymond’s fascination with Handel started in the 1980s when she sang in the Handel Opera Chorus. In 1985 she supplied the research for the Channel 4 film Honour, Profit and Pleasure starring Simon Callow; and her “Handel-Lovers’ Chorus”, a comic version of the Hallelujah Chorus, was published and is still in print.

For forty years she was mainly occupied in teaching English and lecturing in Humanities; her final post was at the City Lit, London, teaching on Handel’s Operas and Oratorios and The Psychology of Religion.
