Handel: Messiah

Performed mainly at Christmas and Easter, the Messiah (HWV 56) is an English-language oratorio composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel. The text is from the King James Bible and from the version of the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer. It was first performed in Dublin on 13 April 1742 and received its London premiere nearly a year later. After an initially modest public reception, the oratorio gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music. Tracks can be licensed individually or as a complete work package. Please contact us for package pricing.
