      ITV takes a wonderfully fresh approach to celebrate Easter and Handel’s great oratorio Messiah, as The South Bank Show follows three Yorkshire choirs and their connection with this treasured work.

      250 years after Handel’s death, The South Bank Show finds out what it means to sing this most popular of oratorios from members of the mighty Huddersfield Choral Society, the smaller Keighley Vocal Union, and the intimate gay and lesbian choir, The Sacred Wing from Leeds. The film captures each of the choirs’ tradition, their passion, their history, their personal stories, their scores handed down from generation to generation, their local landscape - and their preparations in the run up to the day of each of their performances.

      This unique South Bank Show demonstrates how Handel’s masterpiece carries significance for all, religious or otherwise, and that it can be sung anywhere and by anyone. The choirs are as much about friendship and companionship, young and old, as they are about the soaring music of Messiah.
