Handel     Messiah

Written in an astonishing 24 days, Handel's mighty oratorio Messiah is both a meditation on and an exultant celebration of the Incarnation, Passion and Resurrection. This performance adopts Handel’s own practice of introducing some rarely-heard versions of certain movements (often created at the requests of particular singers) alongside more familiar favourites. Playing on period instruments, the specialist musicians of the Yorkshire Baroque Soloists accompany an outstanding team of soloists and the Choir in the work as it might have been heard in London in the last decade of the composer’s life.
