Handel’s Messiah with the Bath Abbey Choir
Fri 29 April, 2022 at 7:00 pm until 9:30 pm
Bath Abbey Choir of Girls and Lay-clerks joined by baroque instrumentalists, Rejouissance
Directed by Huw Williams, Bath Abbey’s Director of Music
Handel’s moving and famous work will be performed during the season of Easter, as it was at its first performance in April 1742. The final section of this monumental piece focuses on the Easter message; the Hallelujah chorus and ‘I know that my redeemer liveth’ crown the work. The Abbey Choir of Girls and Lay-clerks will be joined by baroque instrumentalists Rejouissance in an elegant and stylish performance with soloists from the choir, as in the first performance in Dublin in 1742.
Tickets £20, £15 & £10 (16s and under half-price) from Bath Box Office (All orders will be subject to a booking fee of £1.00)
Audience commendations from our most recent Abbey choir concerts …
‘I felt I had died and gone to Heaven…. and I don’t think I was alone, the audience didn’t move , you could have heard a pin drop!’
‘Quite apart from the beauty of the work, and the sustained excellence of the performance we are bowled over by the standard of your choir. Bravo and thank you.’
Join us for an evening of Easter glory with uplifting music sung with passion, style and elegance.
