Baroque
Messiah
is Handel’s most popular work and has become one of the most renowned
pieces of English sacred music. The majority of his music was popular during his
lifetime and then fell into obscurity, but the
Messiah
has endured.
It has strong historic associations with Leicestershire. The first parish performance
of
Messiah
was at Church Langton. The Leicester Philharmonic Choir chose the work
for their first concert on Christmas Day 1886.
The Phil welcomes back Marylebone Baroque, an orchestra of period instruments, to
perform
Messiah
just as Handel would have heard it.
