Handel, the great composer of Italian opera though the first third of the 1700s, found changing public taste and the cost of mounting productions required a new approach. He turned his immense dramatic talent to writing oratorios in English, telling popular biblical stories which combine epic events with personal response. Messiah was the sixth in the canon and though not the largest or most lavishly scored has become one of the most popular of all works across the centuries.
The text by Charles Jennens is a reflection on Jesus as the Messiah; his Nativity, Passion, Resurrection and Ascension, beginning with prophecies of His coming and ending with Christ’s glorification in heaven.

Composed in just 24 days and first performed in Dublin in 1742, it has been has never left the repertoire and has travelled around the world in all languages and in versions huge and small with all manner of instrumentation. Our performance with some wonderful young singers and on ‘period instruments’ returns to Handel’s original intentions.
