Hallelujah! Handel’s Messiah is more than just another great choral work: it’s practically a national institution. “I think I did see all Heaven before me, and the great God Himself” declared Handel, as he worked on the score that would become the crowning glory of his life’s work, but you don’t need to be a believer to be moved by this most beloved of all sacred masterpieces. Messiah is part of the soundtrack of all our lives, and from Ev’ry Valley and For Unto Us a Child is Born to I Know That My Redeemer Liveth and of course Hallelujah!, you’ll already know the tunes.
No Christmas season is complete without it, and this performance by the Warwickshire-based period instrumental ensemble Armonico Consort under its artistic director Christopher Monks gets back to the style of performance Handel himself would have known. You’ll never hear a fresher or more joyful Messiah.
