When the English Concert performs Handel’s Messiah in the stunning Coventry Cathedral, it’s a match made in heaven: since their founding in 1972, the ensemble has raised the standard for Baroque performance on period instruments, winning major awards for their breathtaking recordings of religious music—including several widely lauded interpretations of Messiah. The ensemble and their extraordinary choir are joined by the great John Nelson in his English Concert debut, alongside star soloists Lucy Crowe, Alex Potter, Michael Spyres, and Matthew Brook, for an unmissable performance—the perfect way to begin your holiday season or to experience a moment of pure magic at any time of year.
