Programme:
Handel Messiah, HWV 56

Erica Eloff soprano
Timothy Morgan countertenor
Bradley Smith tenor
Tristan Hambleton bass baritone
The Hanover Band and Chorus
Andrew Arthur director, harpsichord

Some of the best period instrument specialists in the UK, the goal of the Hanover Band is to give audiences a feeling for what earlier music actually sounded like when heard in favourable circumstances.

With their gutsy playing ‘stripping decades of varnish from the score,’ as the Times says, Handel’s ever-popular Messiah will sound fresh and new.
