This is not a concert performance per se, as members of the audience are warmly encouraged to join in the choruses. The singing will be led by an augmented St Jude’s Singers with accompaniment by The Highlands Sinfonia. The soloists are Melinda Richardson (Soprano), Michael Spencer (Alto), David Allen (Tenor) and Christopher Bambach (Baritone). The soloists will be accompanied by Allan Beavis on the St Jude’s Organ. The performance is under the direction of Eliza-Jane Corley. This annual performance of Messiah is held on the Saturday closest to St Simon and St Jude’s Day (28 October). Annual performances of Messiah were begun by the composer himself who conducted a performance each Easter until his death to support his favourite charity, the Foundling Hospital in London. There is a workshop for the choruses commencing at 2.30pm.
