Present Messiah by Handel

This , April 19th marks 20 Years since ’s first concert in St Mary’s Church .

Now under the direction of Jeffrey Makinson, the choir will be joined by a professional orchestra drawn from musicians from the North of England, in the intimate setting of St Mary’s Church , to perform a small scale version of Messiah by Handel.

This performance with 35 singers is intended to be very similar to Handel’s original which he oversaw in its first performance at Easter in Dublin 1742.

It is interesting to note that although the Messiah has become a traditionally performed at Christmas, sometimes with hundreds of singers, it was originally composed to be sung at Easter with a small choir and orchestra, it is this experience that will re-create on 19th April in St Mary’ Church at 7pm.

The Choir will be joined by professional soloists, Eleanor Gregory, Joyce Tindsley, Guy Elliott and Stuart O’Hara.

Tickets are priced at £17.50 and £12.50 and available through the website
