Messiah comes to Galleywood

St. Michael’s church was packed on Good Friday to hear a performance of Handel’s Oratorio, ‘Messiah’. Local singers joined with the regulars at the church to form a choir of 62 voices. Ian Cruse and Edward Taylor shared duties on the organ and keyboard, with Emily Connor on Cello and the essential support on trumpets by Nick Perry and Jonathan Spencer.
Soloists were Angela Aries, Soprano; Sue Cruse, Alto; Matthew Butt, Tenor; and Russell Gill, Bass. The performance was conducted by St. Michael’s choir leader, Tim Brockington.
