Event Short Description

Fernhurst Choral Society will perform George Frideric Handels Messiah – a show which represents the high point of the 18th century collision of sacred music and opera

Event Information

Fernhurst Choral Society will perform George Frideric Handels Messiah on the 20th of November.

This performance is the first of the Society’s 2021-22 concert season. “We believe Messiah is the perfect choice to mark the Society’s triumphant return to public performance. Full of famous tunes, it represents the high point of the 18th century collision of sacred music and opera”, Society Chair, Nigel Roberts said.

Messiah was composed with a scriptural text from the King James Bible and Psalms from the Book of Common Prayer. It was first performed in Dublin in 1742. After an initially modest public reception, the oratorio gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music.

All audience members will be requested to wear a face covering when in the venue.
