Dublin holds the eighteenth-century composer George Frideric Handel close to its heart. In November 1741, Handel visited Dublin and stayed until the following summer. It was here that in April 1742 he first performed his now famous Messiah with combined choirs from St Patrick’s and Christ Church cathedrals.
On the 23rd and 24th of November, this gloriously uplifting oratorio will be performed within the beautiful surroundings of St Patrick’s cathedral in aid of ‘One Family’—a charitable organization for one-parent families. This promises to be the perfect experience for the thanksgiving season.
