Yesterday evening I have the privilege of photographing a performance of the Messiah at Ampleforth College.  A stunning performance, and a photographic commission which was both interesting and a little challenging.  With such a performance the click of the mirror in my camera was noticeable so I had to pick my moment to take a photograph very carefully.  It was also very noticeable if I moved around so had to choose my location very carefully and stay there for a while, before a suitable moment arose to be able to change location.

The performance was held in the Abbey at Ampleforth which is a stunning location.  The architecture is superb, and despite the lighting not being great, I captured some great photographs.  I thoroughly enjoyed the evening both from a photographic point-of-view, but also as a spectator to the event.  Here is a selection of photographs taken for you to have a look at:
