Handel’s rousing oratorio
The Suffolk Ensemble
Charlotte Bowden soprano
Polly Leech mezzo-soprano
Joel Williams tenor
Keiran Rayner baritone
Ben Parry conductor
We open our Christmas Weekend with Handel’s rousing and uplifting oratorio, a cornerstone of the festive season. So hotly anticipated at its first performance that to increase capacity women were asked to wear dresses ‘without hoops’ and men not to wear their swords, Messiah remains one of the most popular works ever written. Come and enjoy it in the company of the hand-picked musicians of the Suffolk Ensemble, Aldeburgh Voices and soloists from the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme.
