A great musical masterpiece that symbolized cultural reunification in Great Britain after the Jacobite's rebellion of 1745. The dramatic events of the Jacobite Rebellion brought the British Nation to one of its most divisive moments in history. Many scenarios of the rising of 1745 took place In Lancashire, and Manchester was perhaps the English city which contributed the most towards the rebellion with an entire Regiment! We are happy to be collaborating with the Furness Bach Choir to perform this great oratorio which has special relevance for the history of Britain and of Manchester.
