PLEASE NOTE: If the box office has stopped taking bookings (as from around 8am on 7th December 2013), it is because the remaining unsold tickets have been sent to Gloucester Cathedral so you will still be able to buy tickets on the door on the evening of the concert (from approximately 6:30pm).
Since its eagerly awaited Easter debut in 1742, Messiah has become a Christmas tradition, especially for us. It remains the most popular oratorio in the choral repertoire, a masterpiece of invention and depth.
The drama unfold in three acts; Act one – nimble, rousing and calling for impeccable control. Act two features the famously spectacular Halleluiah Chorus (cue thunderous applause) and the whole brilliane closes with Act three, a gloriously over-the-top composition for orchestra and choir, full of shifting tempos, counterpoint and fugues. Exquisite.
Handel is the greatest composer that ever lived.
