Chichester Cathedral – Saturday 8th December 2018
Join us this December for Handel’s blockbuster oratorio and hear some of the repertoire’s most dramatic and exciting choral writing. Since 1742, The Messiah has secured itself firmly in the calendar and become something of a Christmas institution. Retelling the story of Christ, it is heaped full of beautiful arias including He was Despised and Rejected and I Know that My Redeemer Liveth and rousing choruses like For Unto Us a Child is Born and the ever-popular Hallelujah Chorus. Handel’s ability to capture the mood – from passionate rage to serene pastoral moments – is perhaps what makes this one of the most enduring choral works of all time.
