Handel's MessiahChristmas Time, Classical music and Opera
12/13/2018 - 12/14/2018

With the Messiah, Handel moved away from his other oratorios, which were of a clear Italian influence, to embrace ancient passions and German cantatas.

Composed in London in 1741 in just three weeks, the Messiah has traditionally been linked with Christmas, although the oratorio really runs through the life of Jesus. This month of December, the Basílica de Santa Maria del Mar will be the wonderful setting of this magnificent work, by the Cor Atlàntida and the Jove Filharmònica Catalana.
