It was first performed in Dublin on April 13, 1742, and received its London premiere nearly a year later. After an initially modest public reception, the oratorio gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music.

The Choir of St. Jude’s Anglican Church, under the direction of Simon Walker, is an auditioned choir of 32 members dedicated to singing the finest choral music from the Anglican tradition.
