We believe that nothing beats the exciting sound of live choral music. Hertfordshire Chorus sound truly wonderful when you hear them sing music the way the composer intended it to be heard – live! Come and hear us at our next concert to see what we mean.

Elijah was very much the Messiah of its day: a hugely popular work that absolutely cemented Mendelssohn’s position as one of the greatest composers of sacred music. Two thousand people attended the premiere performance of Elijah, which saw Mendelssohn himself take to the podium at Birmingham Town Hall. Elijah has an imaginative orchestration and the variety Mendelssohn brings to the recitatives ensure that they always maintain dramatic impetus. Many arias and choruses have a sheer beauty but above all, there is no mistaking the work’s considerable dramatic impact, epitomised by the vivid characterisation of Elijah himself.

Tickets will be available from Monday 15 July 2019.
