What would Christmas be without Handel’s 'Messiah'?

Jubilantly premiered in 1742, the work is not just an oratorio, but an institution, as Christmassy as plum pudding and as English as Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

The oft-repeated story that King George II shot to his feet when the Hallelujah Chorus broke out marks such a glorious moment that you feel that if it’s not true, well it should be.

And there are the other well-loved solos and choruses too: For Unto Us a Child is Born, Rejoice Greatly...a whole string of unforgettable musical treats up to and including the final Amen chorus.

Let the spirit of Christmas begin!

[Auckland Choral] continue to be one of the jewels in Auckland’s cultural crown
