Schola Cantorum of Oxford 

Steven Grahl conductor

2020 gave us a taste of the unthinkable: a Christmas without Handel’s most festive oratorio, Messiah. Part German passion, part English anthem, part Italian opera, Messiah changed the landscape of vocal music in Britain from the moment it was first performed in 1742 and has held audiences awestruck for nearly three centuries – a towering and inspired creation for soloists, chorus and orchestra that still brings audiences to their feet. Steven Grahl of Christ Church conducts the Orchestra and his own Schola Cantorum of Oxford in a performance of Messiah that, after all we’ve been through, will surely be extra special.
