One of the great Hallé traditions is its annual performance of Handel’s iconic Messiah: the perfect way to start the lead up to Christmas. The work was first performed in 1742 and has since remained the best-loved choral work of them all. Distinguished harpsichordist, organist and conductor John Butt directs this year’s performance. The Hallé Choir will be in full-throated form in uplifting choruses such as ‘Unto us a Child is Born’ and ‘Hallelujah’, while a top line-up of soloists grace the work’s many superb arias. In fact, the performance will inspire throughout, from its opening ‘Comfort ye’ to its final ‘Amen’.
