The Let’s Walk and Talk Guided Tour of Handel’s Dublin attracted about 250 history and music enthusiasts on Easter Monday. According to our knowledgeable guide, Pat Liddy, Handel’s contemporaries would have been a lot more rowdy than us. We still managed to stop Dublin traffic a couple of times during our two hour exploration of the city.
Our Lady’s Choral Society performed excerpts from Handel’s Messiah at the original site where its world premiere took place in 1742.
Some patriotic punters came well prepared for whatever the weather would hold. But, hallelujah, umbrellas and rain ponchos weren’t really needed while a strong voice and a good sense of humour were definitely an asset!
Anyone who likes Handel’s music or enjoys singing and a bit of European history while strolling through some nice parts of Dublin.
