Album Description

Handel’s ever-popular Messiah was recorded live in the superb acoustic of Boston’s Symphony Hall, to mark the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Handel and Haydn Society (H+H), America’s longest-standing performing arts organisation.

Messiah was first performed in Dublin in 1742 and H+H gave the first complete performance of the work in the USA in 1818. It has been performed annually in Boston as part of the H+H concert season every year since 1854.
