The York Minster Choir will be joined by internationally renowned soloists this Christmas for a special performance of Handel’s Messiah in the beautiful setting of York Minster’s Nave. The famous work was first performed in Dublin in 1742 and has since become one of the best-known and most popular English oratorios. What better way to celebrate Christmas than to experience the story of Christ through this moving and poignant choral performance.

This year’s soloists are:

Rowan Pierce  (soprano)
Feargal Mostyn-Williams  (counter-tenor)
Nicholas Watts  (tenor)
Morgan Pearse  (bass)
