We can’t think of a better way of celebrating Christmas than by performing Part One, sometimes called ‘the Christmas portion’, of Handel’s wonderful Messiah. The work begins with the prophecy of the Messiah and His virgin birth by the prophet Isaiah. His birth is also described in words by Isaiah, followed by the annunciation to the shepherds – the only scene from a Gospel (St Luke) in the oratorio – followed by reflections on the Messiah’s deeds.
This performance will be with orchestra and soloists. More information nearer the time.
