We are delighted to have a recording of the annual performance of Handel’s Messiah to share with you this week – The event was recorded on Fishamble Street in Dublin on the 13th of April, 2010. 


Handel’s Messiah was first performed in The Neal’s Music Hall Fishamble Street in Dublin on April 13th 1742.  Since 1991 The Temple bar Cultural Trust have revived the tradition of what is now known as Handel’s Day the highlight of which is a free public open air performance of The Messiah on Fishamble Street and we were there this year to record this very special performance of one of the most uplifting pieces of classical music. 

Conductor Prionsias O’Din with Our Lady’s Choral Society and Soloist Ross Scanlon and The National Symphonia with sound for the open air event by Jim Docherty.

We have split the hour long event into 3 seperate podcasts each one dealing with a different movement of Handel’s extraordinary composition.  Click play to listen here or download and listen later.
