Bach’s greatest masterpiece, performed on period instruments with a stunning line-up of players and singers. Those who crowded into St Peter’s Church in Colchester for our Handel Messiah two years ago will be excited to know that Orlando Jopling has again gathered many of the country’s top baroque experts for a similarly colourful, beautifully-shaped and compelling performance.

Huge congratulations on the most memorable rendering of the Messiah ever. The clarity of the singers and instruments in a small group allowed their quality to come through which tends to get lost in larger productions.
