The Cathedral Choir
and Baroque Orchestra
Audiences have been known to burst into song during the Hallelujah chorus and into tears during He Was Despised. Certainly no other masterwork of religious music is as familiar yet still as exciting as the first time you hear it. The Cathedral Choir, a Baroque period orchestra, the Cathedral setting, and the Christmas season all combine to make this an experience you won’t want to miss.
Handel’s masterpiece in the Cathedral’s setting is the essential Christmas music experience. A Baroque–period orchestra and guest soloists join in the Cathedral’s combined boy, girl, and men’s choirs.
