Messiah George F. Handel
Poster: 26th November 2022 Concert
Composer Profile & Programme Notes: Messiah
For our Autumn 2022 Concert, we perform George Frideric Handel’s best-known work, Messiah.
This large-scale oratorio, composed within 24 days and first performed in 1742, is an immense blending of musical textures.
The many and varied choruses and solos are in equal measure; bold and triumphant, serene, harmonious and melodic, joyous and profound.
It is one of the most enduring works of all time, with the rousing Hallelujah Chorus being one of the most famous and well-loved within the Baroque music genre.
