A perennial favourite and the traditional start to Christmas, Handel’s Messiah is as popular now as it was over two and a half centuries ago, from the heartfelt simplicity of ‘I know that my Redeemer liveth’ to the grandeur of the ‘Hallelujah’ chorus. Those who have attended a Camerata Messiah in previous years will attest to the quality and energy of their performances.
Joining Ben Crick and Skipton Camerata are four nationally established soloists and the ever-versatile Clothworkers Consort of Leeds.
6.15pm Pre-concert talk by Dr Bryan White
