Programme Note

The annual performance of Handel’s Messiah with some of the country’s finest young soloists, two of the region’s finest choirs, and accompanied by the brilliant Suffolk Handel Players under the direction of conductor James Thomas.

Messiah, perhaps the most-loved of oratorios, is a magnificent way of contemplating the mood and flavour of the season of Advent which itself leads into the great celebration of Christmas.
