Messiah – concert
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear our performance of Handel’s MESSIAH with a professional orchestra and four fabulous soloists at The Hawth, Crawley.
Composed in only twenty four days, the piece still inspires listeners over 250 years after the composer’s death and is probably the most performed piece of music in history!
Handel started writing oratorios as a cost saving alternative to opera. Like opera, an oratorio has a driving narrative but there is no need for scenery, costumes or actors. Messiah was written in 24 days as an Easter offering and premiered in Dublin 1742 for a charity concert for inmates of a debtors’ prison. It became a regular feature for his annual fundraising London concert for his favourite charity, The Foundling Hospital and has since been well-known and loved universally.
