Due to illness sadly Christine Rice has had to withdraw from our performance of Messiah on 21 December. We are very grateful to Helen Charlston who has agreed to step in at short notice.

Handel Messiah, HWV 56

Schola Cantorum
Marios Papadopoulos conductor

‘I did think I did see all Heaven before me,’ wrote Handel as he finished Messiah. It is not hard to hear why. Part German Passion, part English Anthem, part Italian Opera, Messiah changed the landscape of vocal music in Britain from the moment it was first performed in 1742, and has held audiences awestruck for nearly three centuries with its biblical stories and reflections on redemption and love. A towering and inspired creation for soloists, chorus and orchestra, Messiah still brings audiences to their feet.
