John Butt: director; Hugo Hymas: tenor. Handel’s Messiah is now a firm fixture in the festive calendar.

As with any great masterpiece, Handel’s Messiah retains a breathtaking freshness and dynamism, even at this the 275th anniversary of its sensational Dublin premiere. Its enduring appeal lies in music of tireless and white-hot inspiration (he wrote it in three weeks), irresistible chorus writing, and, ultimately, a universal message of hope for humanity, thanks to its superbly plotted trajectory from suffering to salvation, and from darkness to light.
