Messiah at Easter - Civis column in ODT Sat 23 Apr 11

Interesting column by Civis in ODT today - another person who appreciated the performance of B minor Mass last Saturday.

Civis discussed Messiah, and made the point that it can be an Easter or Passiontide work just as much as a Christmas time work. It could be the first work sung by the choir to celebrate the re-opening of Dunedin Town Hall, if we know when that will be. If Messiah is sometimes performed at Easter it gives the choir a bit more freedom to choose a variety of works for the Christmas season.
