Join Paul Herriott this evening for a recorded performance of Handel’s Messiah featuring
the Irish Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir Ireland. Themes of comfort, hope and joy
run through this epic work; one of Handel's most popular which famously received its
première in Dublin in 1742. For tonight’s performance the Irish Baroque Orchestra
partnered with Chamber Choir Ireland to tell this wonderful story, under the direction of
Peter Whelan.

Recorded at Thomastown Church, Co. Kilkenny, in December 2022.
