From 17th – 19th December 2020 we recorded our version of Messiah in the beautiful church of St Mary’s in Swaffham Prior, just outside Cambridge. We were socially distanced throughout and followed strict COVID guidelines to allow the recording to take place. It was an intense three days but a joy and a privilege to be back together after so long apart.
Over the years, we have created our own interpretation of Messiah, piecing together the different versions that Handel performed during his lifetime. This recording is not at attempt at recreating a performance from the time, but an amalgamation of different versions to create our own unique offering of this remarkable piece. You may spot a few differences on the way; from the original jaunty 12/8 version of Rejoice Greatly to a shorter version of Why do the Nations (the version that Handel used most during his life). Featuring a small ensemble of period instruments and choir of 11 singers acting as both the soloists and chorus, we hope this CD provides an exciting take on Handel’s masterpiece.
