Handel's most beloved of all oratorios was performed by fewer than forty instrumentalist and a chorus, less than thirty strong, of boy trebles and men. This is the tradition to which this performance has returned to. Members of the Academy all play instruments of the period or accurate modern copies. The soloists improvised embellishments in the arias and, in certain cases, join in the singing of the choruses, just as they would have done 240 years ago.
