Handel's remarkable oratorio Messiah, with its vivid portrayal of biblical scenes and high emotional charge, is staple 'fare' in many people's Christmas musical diet. And rightly so – alongside brilliant solo arias, its magnificent choruses have fired a whole nation's passion for choral-singing. In this performance Britten Sinfonia are joined by a stellar quartet of soloists for a festive performance that is sure to be both thrilling and jubilant.
