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, America’s longest-standing performing arts organization.
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.
Harry Christophers was appointed Artistic Director of Boston’s internationally acclaimed Handel and Haydn Society in
2008.
