Newcastle Bach Choir

Sage One

Handel: Messiah

Although Handel’s most famous work, Messiah, is associated with Christmas, the text of Part Two deals with the Easter story, making it highly appropriate for performance during Lent. This performance is largely based on a version Handel directed in London in 1743 and includes several numbers not usually heard. The Newcastle Bach Choir and period instruments of Newcastle Baroque are joined by a stellar line-up of Samling soloists and international countertenor Lawrence Zazzo.

Soloists in conjunction with Samling:

Rowan Pierce, Ana Fernandez-Guerra (sopranos)
Lawrence Zazzo (countertenor)
Thomas Walker (tenor)
Dominic Sedgwick (baritone)

Newcastle upon Tyne Bach Choir
Newcastle Baroque
Eric Cross (conductor)
