The Hanover Band perform Handel's best known oratorio, Messiah at their new home, the Church of St Nicholas, Arundel.
The internationally renowned Hanover Band has been called one of the UK's finest period-instrument orchestras worldwide. It is famous for its performances of 17th, 18th and 19th century music, played on original period instruments and fine replicas. These instruments require specialist knowledge from the players as they are constructed differently from their modern counterparts - and they make a different sound. In this concert, a contemporary audience will have a wonderful opportunity to hear the same sound as audiences in the time of Handel.
