Wonderful. Counsellor. The Mighty God. The Everlasting Father. The Prince of Peace.

Celebrate the Christmas season and the birth of the Prince of Peace with Handel's Messiah, performed in a space like Handel would have imagined.

With a period Baroque orchestra and a world-class team of soloists, Messiah unveils the story of Christianity in a way few artists have been able to capture. The Cathedral's soaring architecture reflects the majesty of the music.

Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus" contains 128 separate Hallelujahs. Find your own reason to celebrate with Messiah at the Cathedral.
