Händel's Messiah became one of the cornerstones of the English oratorio tradition

One would search in vain for a work in the oratorio repertoire of fame equal to that of Handel’s Messiah. Written in just 24 days, it was already extraordinarily popular in Handel’s day.  The most famous work of its creator, it thrills us to this day with its melodic inventiveness, vocal virtuosity, and exceptionally effective handling of biblical texts.

Program: 

  • G. F. Händel: Messiah HWV 56

Performing:

Deborah Cachet - soprano
Avery Amereau - alto
Krystian Adam - tenor
Luigi De Donato - bass
