December is the time of year for Handel’s magisterial Messiah. After its premiere in Dublin in 1742 the piece soon became a choral institution and the Victorians staged lavish performances of the work with vast choruses and orchestras. Today, however, less being more, Handel’s great work has re-emerged in its original, leaner form. Handel specialist Christian Curnyn is the ideal person to do full justice to the composer’s intentions. From its stately overture to the famous ‘Hallelujah Chorus’ and beyond, the inspirational Messiah is perfect fare for the lead-up to Christmas.
