Saturday 22 March 2014   7.00pm   Bath Abbey

Baroque performance with music for Awhile, Margaret Faultless Leader, Mhairi Lawson Soprano, Michael Chance Alto, Nicholas Mulroy Tenor, Matthew Brook Bass, City of Bath Bach Choir, Nigel Perrin Conductor.
The March concert presents a rare opportunity to hear an authentic baroque-style performance of Handel’s Messiah. With Margaret Faultless’s brilliant orchestra playing on authentic period instruments, four of Britain’s most highly respected baroque soloists and City of Bath Bach Choir’s light touch, we will be close to how Handel conceived his inspirational work. Romanticism and pomposity are replaced by exquisite phrasing and agile virtuosity; this uptempo interpretation enables us to give a complete performance and to include several choruses that are rarely heard.
