Messiah | Cardiff Polyphonic Choir

Saturday, December 9, 2017 - 19:30

No Christmas is complete without hearing a live performance of Handel’s greatest and most popular oratorio!

Cardiff Polyphonic Choir (conductor: David Young) the baroque orchestra Réjouissance (leader: Simon Jones) bring together a quartet of highly talented soloists who perform regularly and to great acclaim on the international concert stage.

Sarah Tynan (soprano)– “extraordinarily intrepid performance surely crosses into realms where no opera singer has gone before." – The Times

William Towers (countertenor:) – “Yet for style and assurance, it was the countertenor William Towers who stood out. Of all the elegant elaborations of the da capo arias, his were the boldest, and in the aria "He was despised" the beauty and directness of expression of his voice sent a shiver down the spine” - The Guardian

Joshua Ellicott (tenor) - “stand out in an excellent cast” – New York Times
Matthew Brook (bass) – “Matthew Brook was outstanding.” – The Guardian
