Handel’s Messiah • Postponed

The performance of Messiah by the Choir of St Paul’s Cathedral with Academia Arcadia first scheduled for 22 May 2020, then 14 May 2021 will necessarily be postponed again, this time indefinitely.

COVID safe conditions still do not recommend large groups singing together, and of 18 boy choristers last year only 9 remain due to changing voices, so there’s quite a bit of rebuilding to do there, as well as with the girls’ voices, many of whom have only recently sung their first service in the Cathedral.

Once we’ve built the choir up again and done some rehearsing, we’ll announce a new date – hopefully in 2022.
