Handel?s Messiah is a great work for orchestra, chorus and soloists. The text is taken from the Bible and forms a dramatic commentary on the whole prophecy and fulfillment of the redemption of man.
As with all oratorios, Messiah, is divided into three parts. In Messiah, the three parts represent Christ?s birth, death, and resurrection; each part breaking down into a series of arias and choruses, with a Biblical passage as their basis.
Messiah is Handel?s (1685-1759) most famous work and remains immensely popular among concert-goers in the English-speaking world.
