Messiah sing along

ON SUNDAY 6th December, at 8pm, St. Paul’s Anglican Church hosts the 5th sing-along of Handel’s oratorio, Messiah. Come and add your voice to celebrate the Christmas message!

Our 5th ‘Messiah Sing-Along’ is being held on Sunday 6th December, at 8pm, in the church of St. Paul’s, Philellinon 27 and Amalias Avenue, with the participation of members of the Deree College Choir and alumni of the Pallini Music School. Join us in this uplifting event, where everyone can be part of the chorus, and enjoy singing a momentous work.

Composed in 1741, this English-language oratorio is the best-known work worldwide by Handel (1685-1759) and, although initially destined for Eastertide, has come to mark the beginning of the festive period leading to Christmas. The libretto is the work of Charles Jennens, who compiled a scriptural text based on the King James Bible and the version of the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer. We shall be singing the first two parts (see below) and hope you will come and add your voice – or, if you are too shy to sing, listen to this wonderful seasonal work.
Ticket at the door: € 5.00 (students € 3.00) – Scores will also be available for purchase at the door.
