It’s all too easy to take Handel’s 'Messiah' for granted.

This extraordinary and enduring work has become a staple of the Christmas season, with its glorious arias and choruses ringing out in concert halls around the world. But with Dunedin Consort it never loses its magic.

Performed by our lithe ensemble of just 12 singers and 15 instrumentalists, Handel’s music remains as crisp, powerful and uplifting as it was at its first performance. Christmas just wouldn’t be complete without it!


Mhairi Lawson – soprano
