Following the acclaim that greeted his iconic oratorio, Messiah, Handel attained the status of what we’d call today a national treasure. With arias like ‘The trumpet shall sound’, and ‘I know that my Redeemer liveth’, the orchestral pastorale heralding the shepherds, and choruses, such as ‘Lift up your heads, O ye gates’, and, of course ‘Hallelujah’, the work teems with musical greatness and is a cornerstone of the Hallé’s Christmas celebrations. Matthew Hamilton, the Hallé’s Choral Director, has been building a national reputation, but this is the first time that he conducts Messiah with the choir he’s been successfully training for five years. Joining him and the Hallé Choir is a starry line-up of British soloists at the top of their game.
