George Handel. Messiah. London Symphony Orchesta Conducted by Sir Colin Davis. 1966

A Piece of music for a gorgeous Saturday Handel’s Messiah

George Frideric Handel, born in the same year as Johann Sebastian Bach and Domenico Scarlatti. By Thomas Hudson (1749)

Woof, woof for everyone! Today is Saturday and I have to work but I am happy for that. How can a dog write posts talking about classical music? I cannot answer this question but… I can give you a little present every day. Today, we will enjoy a magical piece of the Baroque period, Handel’s Messiah. This is, with Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, maybe one of the most representative and remembered compositions in this period. I’ve always admired Handel. He is a genius!

This version is conducted Sir Colin Davis. Heather Harper (soprano), Helen Watts (contralto), John Wakefield (tenor), John Shirley-Quirk (bass), Ralph Downes (organ), Leslie Pearson (harpsichord) and William Lang (trumpet)

Recorded in 1966.  London Symphony Orchestra

Have a great Handel’s Birthday Anniversary. Woof, woof and… Peace, love and food for everyone!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
