A Pastoral Messiah

a staged version of Handel’s oratorio for 5 soloists,  an Ensemble Chorus and a Host Choir from the Community.

Set in rural England in the 19th-century, A Pastoral Messiah is a tale of love, betrayal, and the grace needed to forgive.  An Anglican parson and a charismatic Methodist preacher counsel the young Squire, Milkmaid and Carpenter as they grapple with sin, suffering and repentance.

The story of the Messiah – as illuminated through Handel’s music – resonates with new power for all of us.  Originally performed in 2009, A Pastoral Messiah was staged again in 2011, 2012 and 2013

“I have never felt so emotional listening to or singing the Messiah.  I am sure it will become a Xmas classic and many choral  societies or maybe schools will want to participate.”

“The folk who came to listen last night were thrilled….one was very moved by the story, which he hadn’t expected to enjoy as he is ‘a bit of a purist.”

“Just to say this was the most unexpected and utterly delightful experience. Would gladly see Pastoral Messiah again.”

“The soloists were just wonderful. I cried for most of the last part. And, if someone had said four years ago, that I would be part of such a thing, I would have laughed!”
