Shot live at the Chapel of King's College, Cambridge in High Definition and Full Surround Sound to celebrate Handel's 250th anniversary, Easter at King's features a glorious performance of what is probably the most popular of all oratoriosMessiah. Under the direction of Stephen Cleobury, the Choir's much anticipated presentation of Handel's Messiah is the centerpiece of King's College's 10-day Easter celebration. Internationally recognized as the pre-eminent representative of the great British church music tradition, the Choir owes its existence to King Henry VI who envisaged the daily singing of services in his magnificent chapel. To this day, this remains the Choir's raison d'être.
