It is now the 10th time Mogens Dahl Chamber Choir sing Christmas in with Händel’s most popular choral work – the magnificent oratorio Messiah. This traditional concert in Holmen’s Church has been praised to the heavens by all reviewers, who have fallen in love with Mogens Dahl’s slender and crisp Baroque edition.

With shifting string ensembles, a large selection of young international soloists and the professional Mogens Dahl Chamber Choir in the centre, the ambition has been to create a knife-sharp edition where Händel’s amazing melodies and well-played baroques gain the greatest impact. At this year’s performance, the amazing Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment from England will once again contribute.


“Mogens Dahl’s outstanding Messiah” wrote Berlingske’s reviewer Søren Schauser, and adorned it with six stars following the performance where the British Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment contributed for the first time in 2016. Politiken was also enthusiastic: “It was simple, beautiful and redeeming,” wrote Thomas Michelsen.
