A great Christmas tradition, Handel’s Messiah is a dramatic story of faith, suffering and redemption. This masterpiece of the Baroque includes memorable songs such as Rejoice Greatly, the Hallelujah chorus, and The Trumpet Shall Sound. For this performance, the MSO Chorus joins a magnificent cast and a fine Handel conductor.
Dr Peter Tregear will present a talk on Handel’s sacred masterwork, the Messiah.
