Handel museum celebrates 'A Georgian Christmas'

Published: Tuesday 25th of November 2008

A London museum will celebrates the Christmas song of the Georgian period early next month.

Handel House Museum, which commemorates the life and work of the famous composer GF Handel in one of his former residences, will host A Georgian Christmas on December 4th.

The ever-popular Pegasus choir will perform a selection of carols from the period as well as parts of the composer's much-loved Messiah, composed in 1741.

Handel's old music room will be the venue for what promises to be the perfect antidote to the chilly winter weather, as will the traditional Christmas refreshments that will be served before the concert.

George Frideric Handel lived at 25 Brook Street in London, part of the site of the current museum, for 36 years up until his death in 1759.

Next door at number 23, which now houses the museum's exhibition space, was occupied by American musical icon Jimi Hendrix for a short period in the late 1960s.

Visitors to the Handel House Museum can enjoy free entry with their LondonPass, saving £5 for adults and £2 for children.
