Thanks for supporting St. John Cantius' production of Handel's Messiah!

Event

Messiah
Hear the all professional St. Cecilia Choir and Orchestra of St. John Cantius Church of Chicago sing the stunning "Messiah" of George Frederick Handel in the Baroque splendour of St. John Cantius Church.

Handel, upon reading the Messianic Scriptures from the Old and New Testaments (August, 1741) was overcome by their power. The music began dancing and exploding within him. He immediately shut himself in and worked night and day, often forgetting to eat. His servants could, from time to time, hear his sobs as he labored over the inspired text. He finished the original libretto and score in 24 days. Handel's Messiah is a veritable masterpiece!
