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 is first performance. Christmas just wouldn’t be complete without it. 

G.F. Handel - 'Messiah, HWV 56'

The Children's Messiagh will stream from The Perth Concert Hall online on Tuesday 22 December 2020, which you can view free here.

"John Butt’s 'Messiah' has long been considered a benchmark small-scale interpretation, for its musical and textual clarity, its drive and drama, the way it captures the score’s elation and joy."
