Handel’s Messiah

George Frederic Handel, a German composer, was a child prodigy. If a friend of Handel’s father hadn’t heard the eleven year old play the organ, his father would have educated him as a lawyer. This piece was composed for Easter. It’s now well ensconced as Christmas song. It’s one of my favorites to listen to and to sing with a choir.

  1. I was blessed to be allowed to sing soprano in a mass performance of ‘The Messiah’ at London’s Royal Albert Hall back in the early 80’s. What an experience! This work has stayed embedded in my mind ever since. It always gives me an emotional and spiritual high. 🙂
