Hallé Choir

When first performed in Dublin in 1742, Handel’s Messiah was greeted with unadulterated enthusiasm; however, its English premiere the following year flopped. Ever the astute entrepreneur, and being wholly confident that he’d composed a masterpiece, Handel, mothballed the oratorio for a couple of years; thereafter it flourished, becoming a cornerstone of the choral repertoire. An essential part of every Hallé Christmas, Messiah is conducted here for the first time by Choral Director Matthew Hamilton with the choir he’s been training for seven years. Over this period, he’s been building a national reputation and joining him is a starry line up of young British soloists making names for themselves including Rowan Pierce, who sings the vocal parts of the character Sienna Rosso in Bridgerton, and Ben Johnson, former Kathleen Ferrier Award winner.
