Handel’s Messiah: Manchester Baroque
19 November 2023
I share with you an invitation received this past week ahead of a performance of Handel’s Messiah in December:
One of the highlights of the festive season for many people is going to a performance of Handel’s Messiah. It is the story of the life of Christ told through a series of wonderful songs and choral pieces culminating in the magnificent Hallelujah Chorus. Manchester-based Charity, Manchester Baroque and their professional orchestra will be performing it with the Manchester Cathedral Choir at Manchester Cathedral on Saturday 9 December at 7pm. On the evening of Good Friday, 29 March at 4.30pm Manchester Baroque will be playing again at Manchester Cathedral to perform Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with Manchester Cathedral Choir, one of the most moving pieces of music ever written, performed for the occasion in the Church calendar for which it was originally written. Tickets start at £10 plus booking fees.
