Firmly established as a Christmas tradition for audiences across the globe, Handel's Messiah is a true celebration of the nativity; exhilarating yet deeply emotional and resonant. Comprising a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible and psalms from the Book of Common Prayer, Messiah brings some of most evocative oratorio writing in the repertoire featuring 'For unto us a child is born', 'The trumpet shall sound' and the famous 'Hallelujah' chorus.
