No work of sacred choral music has won the hearts of audiences and performers like Handel’s Messiah. Since its 1742 premiere, Messiah has been a centerpiece of Christmas and Easter celebrations around the world. At Saint Thomas, it is a much-loved Christmas tradition. The New Yorker notes that “The Saint Thomas Choir offers a Messiah of impeccable musicality and taste.”
In her review, New York Times music critic Vivien Schweitzer writes:
“The annual Saint Thomas version (of Messiah) is a king among the innumerable performances in New York, admired for the pure sound of the Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys and the spirited playing of Concert Royal, a period-instrument ensemble.”

We invite you to join us this joyous holiday season for a performance of Messiah in the glorious setting of Saint Thomas Church.
