The sound of the chorus was remarkable: full-bodied, with bloom and warmth and not a hint of strain.

Handel's Messiah is one of the composer's most well-known pieces and an iconic Christmas presentation. New York's very own Musica Sacra Chorus and their orchestra take on this epic work with the company's music director, Kent Tritle, conducting.

'Messiah' is an oratorio or composition which makes us of a full orchestra and expansive choir. An oratorio is similar to an opera however does not make use of any costumes or sets as it doesn't have a spoken narrative. Rather the story is told as the choir sings.

This annual production has been described as "one of the most reliable and popular of the seasonal 'Messiah' performances" - a testament to the incredible talent of the Musica Sacra Chorus and the longevity of Handel's work.

Encompassing the much-loved 'Hallelujah Chorus', watching this majestic composition performed by a live choir and orchestra is something that is not readily forgotten and a memorable experience for the family.
