Christmas at the Cathedral: Handel's Messiah
On Friday, December 14, 2018, the parishioners of St. Joseph Cathedral in Manchester celebrated their annual Christmas at the Cathedral concert. This year's performance featured W.A. Mozart's "Vesperae Solennes de Confessore (KV. 339)" and G.F. Handel's "Messiah (Part I)". The musicians included a chamber orchestra, the combined choirs of the Cathedral, and Mr. Eric J. Bermani, Diocesan and Cathedral Director of Music and Organist. You can learn more about this and future events by visiting the Cathedral's website.
