Handel: Messiah, Full Score
The best-known and most beloved large-scale musical work in the English-speaking world, Handel’s Messiah was first performed in Dublin over 200 years ago. Since then, it has given millions of performers their primary experience in singing classical music and stands as the supreme example of the English oratorio. A meditation on the life of Christ, the work is a brilliant amalgam of traditional Italian opera, English anthem and German Passion.
Reprinted from the authoritative edition prepared by noted musical scholar Alfred Mann, this inexpensive, full score edition will be welcomed by students, musicians, singers and music lovers alike.
