About the event

Messiah, HWV 56

Catherine Wyn-Rogers mezzo-soprano
Daniel Normantenor
Matthew Brook bass
Schola Cantorum of Oxford
Steven Grahl ‚chorus master

Marios Papadopoulos ‚conductor

'I did think I did see all Heaven before me' wrote Handel as he finished Messiah. It's not hard to hear why. Inside its biblical stories and reflections on redemption and love, Messiah contains some of the most moving music ever composed – as touching as it is universal. For this seasonal performance in the atmospheric surroundings of the Sheldonian Theatre, Marios Papadopoulos and the Orchestra are joined by first-rate vocal soloists and the virile, gleaming voices of the Schola Cantorum of Oxford. Among many alternatives, this is one Christmas concert not to miss.
