Handel’s visionary, ecstatic Messiah; a perfect start to the festive season.
Messiah is one of those pieces which we think we all know, and then you sit in front of it and are once again wowed and reminded just what a genius Handel was. Full of memorable tunes, it’s an ever-dramatic rollercoaster of emotion that takes in rage, sorrow, joy and jubilation.
