Description

A grand performance of the glorious Baroque-era sacred oratorio of George Frideric Handel’s Messiah will be performed by the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra with the University of Western Australia Choral Society and the Goldberg Ensemble at St Paul’s Anglican Pro-Cathedral on Friday 12 January 2018 at 7 pm. The conductor will be Michael Laus and the soloists will be leading Maltese singers Gillian Zammit, Claire Massa, Juan Gambina and Albert Buttigieg

Handel’s Messiah has been described as “one of Man’s grandest musical achievements” and still awes listeners almost 260 years after the composer’s death. Messiah is a narrative drama about the life of Christ, and a meditation on the idea of a Messiah, which is why some of the text is derived not from the New but from the Old Testament. Later parts of the oratorio offer episodes dealing with Christ's birth, sufferings, death, and resurrection. While Handel's oratorios usually had characters and a clear narrative, Messiah does not. Soloists are still used, but for their vocal qualities rather than to represent specific individuals.

This promises to be a rousing performance of a most loved and popular work.

All proceeds from the concert will be in aid of the St Paul’s Anglican Pro-Cathedral Save Valletta’s Skyline Restoration Appeal.
