With their historically accurate instruments and technique, this scintillating orchestra, conducted by Richard Egarr, will tell the life story of Christ, including the Nativity, with a dynamism that makes the familiar tale seem new.
With soloists including the crystalline soprano Mary Bevan and wonderfully expressive baritone Christopher Purves, this Messiah is an absolute must-do in the busy Christmas diary.
