Handel Messiah


Ruby Hughes soprano
Robin Blaze countertenor
Nicholas Mulroy tenor
Ben McAteer bass
Simon Wright conductor
Winchester Consort
English Chamber Orchestra

When King George II first heard Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus, it is said that he jumped to his feet with excitement. But if Hallelujah! Is all you know of Handel’s Messiah, you’re in for a glorious surprise because every note is just as inspired.

Not so much an oratorio, more a national institution; this is simply some of the most uplifting music ever written and the ECO’s Advent Sunday performances at Cadogan Hall have become something of a seasonal tradition.

With Simon Wright conducting hand-picked singers of the Winchester Consort, tonight we celebrate all the melody and majesty of this timeless classic.

This performance of Messiah is dedicated to the memory of Raymond Leppard CBE and will be introduced by Dame Janet Baker.

NB. Please note start time.

Duration: approx. 2 hours 45 mins (incl. interval)
