Artistic Director Jose Aparicio conducts Napier Civic Choir, with Hawke's Bay Orchestra, in yet another splendid performance of Handel's Messiah. Soloists Anna Leese - soprano; Christie Cook - alto; Frank Carter - tenor.

Handel turned to English oratorio in the 1730s in response to changes in public taste. Messiah was his sixth work in this genre. After an initially modest public reception, this oratorio gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music. Its structure resembles that of opera without impersonations of characters or direct speech. We cannot think of a better way to welcome our Christmas festivities.
