Messiah with Kathleen Ferrier, 1944

The Society has usually been able to call on the very best soloists for their concerts – although there are instances where they found the fee too high!  Towards the end of World War 2, Kathleen Ferrier, already recognised as a major talent, took part in “Messiah” in two performances a week apart in Oldham and in Stockport.  Different tenor and bass soloists were used for the two concerts.
