Despite initially gaining a modest reaction on its premiere in Dublin in 1741, Messiah's qualities have since been recognised, making it one of the most sought after and beloved works in Western music. With a scriptural text comprised of extracts from the King James Bible and the Common Book of Prayer, it celebrates the Advent season in high style, filling the concert hall with unparalleled triumph and glory that you'll remember all year round.
