Known in the 19th century as the Messiah of its day, Mendelssohn’s dramatic oratorio never loses its grip on an audience. Conductor Laureate Christopher Hogwood makes a triumphant H&H return to lead the Period Instrument Orchestra and Chorus and soloists. Acclaimed bass-baritone Andrew Foster-Williams sings the pivotal role of the Old Testament prophet.
