Handling the Messiah

On the 13th March at 3 o’clock the Director of Music at St John’s Hyde Park and Nick Miller, Organist, took a group of 12 volunteers through their paces as he prepared them to sing Handel’s Messiah with the St John’s Choral Scholars. At 6 o’clock the lights went down and the performance began. It was a wonderful evening for all those who took the opportunity to sing and those who had the benefit of hearing them. The performance was augmented by a series of backgrounds taken from frescoes by Fra Angelico.
