Forever associated with Christmas, the first performance of Messiah 250 years ago assured its everlasting fame.

Divided into three separate parts that cover Christ’s birth, crucifixion and redemption, this concert is filled with well-known favourites such as ‘For unto us a child is born’, ‘Hallelujah’ and the blazing, ‘The trumpet shall sound’.
