4barsrest Review: “This is a stunning achievement. Handel’s masterpiece has received many outstanding performances since it was first heard in Dublin in 1742, and was in fact performed memorably by Black Dyke and the Halifax Choral Society in 1951, but this recording deservedly stands comparison with any that have taken place.”
The Compleat Messiah Review: “… it is a MUST hear.”
Single CD: £5 + £3 P&P

For connoisseurs of a real Yorkshire speciality, ‘Hail Smiling Morn’ is included in this wide-ranging selection of festive music.

To mark the bicentenary of the Society, Dr John A. Hargreaves has compiled the first ever comprehensive official history of the Choir.
Against the odds, the HCS has entered the musical record books as the first ever secular UK choral society to have a continuous series of concert seasons for the past 200 years.
This fascinating and high-quality production delves deep into the workings of the choir, alongside the social history of the Halifax area and its people.
