What the papers said about our Messiah


It’s always nice to get a good review.

“(KVU Singers) gave an expectedly magnificent performance of Handel’s masterpiece……..Wonderfully conducted again by Frank Smith and expertly accompanied by guest organist David Houlder……..The famous Hallelujah Chorus, and monumental final Amen, had the packed audience leaping to their feet. Bravo!” – Keighley News

The Messiah is an oratorio composed in 1741 by George Frederic Handel, with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible. First performed in Dublin on 13th April 1742 and received it’s London premiere nearly a year later. KVU Singers are well known for their performances and have been singing the Messiah at the Freckleton Music Festival for over 25 years.
