Messiah (Part 1) October 2015

MessiahFlyerFinalWe returned on 17 October to our old stamping-ground of St John’s, Ballinteer where we finally put the Messiah into our CV, opening the concert with a performance of the first part of Handel’s great oratorio.

Our large audience seemed to enjoy that and the other items on the programme, particularly the Haydn trumpet concerto and the spiritualSteal Away‘ from Tippett’s oratorio A Child of Our Time. Our four young singer soloists, along with the seasoned professional musicians – many of them National Symphony orchestra members – of the string ensemble, and of course organist David Leigh, did the programme full justice.
