  • VOCES8 Centre St Anne & St Agnes Church, Gresham Street London, EC2V 7BX United Kingdom (map)

The VOCES8 Foundation ensembles combine with the Academy of Ancient Music for a performance of Handel’s oratorical showpiece.

About this Event

Artistic Director Barnaby Smith directs the combined forces of VOCES8, VOCES8 Scholars, Apollo5 and the Academy of Ancient Music in a spirited performance of Handel’s oratorio masterpiece.

[Handel] would surely have delighted in the bristling, youthful economy and grace of a small-scale performance last week by Voces8 … all conducted with infectious energy by Barnaby Smith. With the Academy of Ancient Music providing fiery orchestral colour, this Messiah rocked along with breathtaking fervour, but left space for contemplation too.”
