This performance of Handel’s Messiah is taking place exactly 260 years since the last performance that Handel himself attended, in Covent Garden in 1759, just 8 days before he died.
And more recently, in 1980, Messiah was the first work performed by the English Arts Chorale, then in its first incarnation as the St Mary’s Singers, also in St Mary’s Church.
