Royal Northern Sinfonia
Handel’s Messiah isn’t so much an oratorio, more a national institution. Everyone knows the Hallelujah chorus, but if that’s all you know, you’re in for a wonderful revelation – because every note is just as inspired. And you don’t have to be religious to be stirred by some of the most heartfelt and uplifting music ever written. Over three and a half centuries, it’s become something of a Christmas tradition, but it’s anything but staid and under the dynamic American conductor Jeanette Sorrell, expect a performance that brings out all the energy, freshness and sheer inspiration of this timeless classic.
Part of our RNS Christmas series.
