Simply one of the greatest choral works of all time, Handel’s Messiah, under the baton of Music Director of Graham Walker, will be performed in Hong Kong on 18th December and Singapore on 20th December.
Composed in only 24 days, Handel’s Messiah is extraordinary as the entire text of its oratorio is taken word for word from the Bible. From the first notes of its overture, Messiah traces the story of Jesus Christ from the need for a Saviour from the fall of man to His triumphant return at the end of days. It continues to be the composer’s most popular work and may well be the most performed classical work of all time.
