Handel's Messiah
Reviews

Society shows masterpiece's enduring appeal



HANDEL'S Messiah is one of the most popular and best loved choral works and, for many people, a performance now heralds the impending arrival of Christmas.

It is impossible to listen to this oratorio without marvelling at what Handel achieved in just 24 days though, admittedly, he constantly revised his composition over many years.

The 15th-century St James' Church in Louth was the ideal backdrop for this recital by Louth Choral Society, accompanied by the Eastern Sinfonia, under the direction of Martin Pickering.

Handel's Israel in Egypt
Reviews

Magnificent Choral singing

Oratorios are the staple diet of large choirs but few test them in quite the same way as Handel’s Israel in Egypt: it is full of chorus work (some for double choir) and has very little orchestral introduction or solo work to give time to rest the voice. This is in contrast to better known works like the Messiah and Elijah. To attempt it is brave, to produce such at a memorable concert is a great credit to Louth Choral Society under their Musical Director, Martin Pickering.

The Sound of Choral Music

Louth Choral Society entertained an appreciative audience at St. James's Church on Sunday evening to the sounds of Mozart and Haydn. The evening sun was setting, and illuminated the recently restored stained glass window, as the numerous singers of this excellent society smartly took their places, along with the members of the Eastern Sinfonia.
