“I have heard great music–even sublime music. I’ve heard music fit for princes, for kings. I have heard music fit for any monarch. But that night, for the first time in my life, I heard music fit for God.”

J. Scott Featherstone, Hallelujah – The Story of the Coming Forth of Handel’s Messiah

 

George Frederick Handel’s ‘Messiah’ (1741) is one of the most famous pieces of music to ever be composed. It is most known for the popular chorus ‘Hallelujah,’ but is certainly enjoyable beyond that one chorus. Written in an unprecedented three weeks (which is incredibly fast by standards of that time), Handel wrote all three movements of this orchestrated masterpiece with biblical texts. This work was written at a particularly low point in Handel’s life – he was broke, his health was failing him, and he was critically ridiculed. However, his fortunes changed radically – thanks to ‘Messiah’.

 

This particular 19th-century printing includes rare accompaniments by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who was only three years old when Handel died. Mozart recognized the importance and magnitude of this oratorio and contributed to its lasting legacy.
