Auckland Choral present Handel’s MESSIAH


Messiah brings people such joy and overwhelming pleasure, so it’s easy to understand its phenomenal popularity. In 1742, Handel’s name drew such a crowd that audience members were advised to leave their hooped skirts and swords at home for fear of overcrowding at the Dublin premiere. The tradition of presenting the much-loved masterpiece at Christmas rather than Easter grew out of fundraisers knowing that people’s spirit of giving to charities was far greater at Christmas, and by the 1960s Messiah had been almost completely transformed to a Christmas event.
