Laughing in melismas…

The Hallelujah Chorus still has the ability to raise the hairs on the back of the neck, as the audience in Christ Church Cathedral discovered last night. The Orchestra of St. Cecilia along with the Cathedral Choir gave a professional performance of Handel’s famous oratorio to a sell-out audience of 500 people. Performing all three sections of the work, the choir and soloists Deboragh Abbott, Duncan Brickenden, Peter Davoren and Philip O’Reilly captivated the audience in this festival highlight.
