Handel’s Messiah

Concert or Performance

14 Mar 2020

Handel’s Messiah shocked the authorities, disrupted traffic, enthralled its audiences and brought a king to his feet. Composed in just 24 days, it was an instant hit and for almost three centuries has remained one of the world’s favourite choral works: visionary, lyrical and deeply human.

Sydney Chamber Choir is thrilled to be launching its 45th anniversary season with this Baroque masterpiece, performed in true Baroque style with the forces that Handel himself had in mind. There are delights in every bar of this extraordinary score: cascades of melody, intricate webs of counterpoint, orchestral fireworks, poignant and dramatic arias, stately choral splendour, striking harmonies, dancing rhythms, wit and warmth and an infinite variety of vocal and instrumental colours. Messiah is, quite simply, a joy to perform and a joy to hear: an absolute treasure-trove of exquisite arias and glorious choruses.
