Event Details

1741 Autograph/1742 Dublin Premiere

An Intimate Performance of Handel's Original Work

Originally composed for the Easter Season, Handel’s autographed Messiah manuscript - and it's Premiere performance in Dublin - contained movements that are not the versions we are familiar with today. Though it became a larger event over the years, the original Messiah was not the large choral and orchestral affair we often hear performed; quite the contrary, this famous piece first featured a small ensemble of voices and a modest consort of instruments. In many ways, the original Messiah was a very different piece of music, indeed!

Beginning what we hope will become an annual Charleston tradition, The King's Counterpoint is excited to present 'A Baroque Chamber Music Messiah' - and each Easter season, we will offer The Holy City a different version of this masterpiece of music, presented chronologically as Handel arranged them, and in the Baroque style in which they were originally performed!

The King's Counterpoint will begin with a combination of the 1741 Autograph and 1742 Dublin Premiere versions of this fabulous work - It's an historic event that we are excited to bring to our Charleston audiences!  

With very special guests, members of the North Carolina Baroque Chamber Orchestra!
