Messiah Highlights - 21 December
Whilst Covid continues to present everyone with challenges, here's a way to have at least a taste of a traditional Christmas concert: highlights from Handel's Messiah.
Because of social-distancing, we cannot give you the full works, but instead we will have a quartet of professional singers sing both their solos and together for the choruses. A small ensemble, led by Laurence Kempton - who gave a memorable recital at Minch in October - will provide the accompaniment. The performance will include all of Part 1 until the Christmas scene, and much of the music from Part 2, concluding with the Hallelujah Chorus.
As with our Saturday morning concerts, entry is free with a retiring collection. The first sitting is at twilight (4.30pm), and the second at 6.30. Both will last approximately and hour and ten minutes without a break.
