For the fifth time, and continuing the tradition started six years ago, the Ristretto Chamber Choir and Instrumental Ensemble, directed by Errol Girdlestone, will perform Handel’s Messiah at St Paul’s Anglican Church in Monaco on Saturday, December 2.

The 8 pm concert will include international soloists Elenor Bowers-Jolley, Sarah Richmond, Aidan Coburn and Thomas Dear.

One of the greatest musical masterpieces of all times, George Frideric Handel’s
Messiah was first performed in 1742. Composed in English, the Baroque-era oratorio still awes listeners 250 years after the composer’s death. The work – regularly performed during Advent, with its stunning choruses, dramatic arias, and underlying emotional intensity – has become a tradition for many music lovers firmly associated with the weeks leading up to Christmas.

The annual production at St Paul’s Church (22 ave de Grande Bretagne) is possible thanks to a generous anonymous donor. Tickets €30 from FNAC or Carrefour, or at the door based on availability.
