    Messiah | Newbury Chamber Choir
    Christopher Foster, Daniel Joy, Edward Lambert, Ellen Williams, Newbury Chamber Choir, Polly Leech, The Music Troupe Band
    Church of St John the Evangelist Newbury RG14 7PY
    United Kingdom

    With text drawn entirely from the Bible so that everyone could understand it, Handel's oratorio was almost destinted to be a hit before a note of music was written. But what music! Dramatic and reflective in the best operatic tradition, its depth and variety continue to amaze audiences to this day. This concert brings together superlative soloists and a a period instrument ensemble. Last presented by Newbury Chamber Choir in 2013, one reviewer wrote that he was "taken aback by the sheer vitality of this performance" and concluded it would remain "a stand-out Messiah for years to come". There's no need to wait any longer; don't miss this Christmas revival in the beautiful acoustic of St John's Church.

    Messiah
    George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)
