Since the inauguration of Cathedral Choir in 1432, music has been at the heart of visiting Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. Experience the joy of witnessing a world class choir preform Handel's Messiah in the sacred grounds.

You’re invited to join the Cathedral for a special performance of the Christmas music from Handel’s great oratorio MESSIAH along with other festive music all performed by the stunning voices of the world renowned Cathedral Choir.

Whilst the Cathedral Choir has a long association with MESSIAH, having sung for the premiere in 1742, it is a work that is rarely performed by them these days. So don’t miss this opportunity to hear the divine voices of the choristers and lay vicars sing this wonderful music in the beautiful candlelit surroundings of Ireland’s premiere Cathedral.

Premium Tickets including seating in the Box Pews ( immediately in front of the staging area), Interval Hospitality and a Commemorative Concert programme, tickets cost from €35 (€30 concessions)

The concert is given in aid of the Cathedral Roof Fund which is seeking to raise the remaining €5 million needed to complete major necessary repairs.
