Come and join the Smith Square Voices for their annual scratch performance of what is probably the most popular of all choral works – Handel’s Messiah. Accompanied by the Chartwell Sinfonia, and with Tenebrae’s Associate Artists as soloists, choral singers are invited to come together to celebrate and perform as part of our Holy Week Festival.
There is not a more appropriate work at this time of year than Handel’s supremely powerful oratorio which tells the story of Christ’s foretelling, His passion and the mystery of mankind’s redemption through His suffering.
There will be a choir ‘warm-up’ between 1.00pm – 2.00pm, followed by a full rehearsal with orchestra between 2.30pm – 5.30pm. We will be performing the Watkins Shaw edition published by Novello. Vocal scores will be available for hire from St John’s Smith Square for £5 each.
