. The Gorman musical composer,
George Frederick Handel (1685-1759)
Is renowned chiefly for "The Messiah,"
the most popular of oratorios. While
in England ho wrote this oratorio, but
it was first given in Dublin in April,
1742 for the aid of charity. The words
were arranged by his friend Charles
At tho first London performance,
March 23, 1743, in Covent Garden,
hen tho "Halleluiah Chorus" was
reached, tho king and." whole audience
arose, and-thus established a custom
which continues to this day. T;ho
MesBlah" was performed thirty-four
times during the composer's life, but
noyer mpon a scale commensurate
with- its merits, until tho Handel com
memoration at Westminster Abbey in
1784, when tho largest choir and band
asseinbled, with Madame Mara at tho
head of the soloists. The orchestra
then numbered 242, the chorus 267.
The oratorio is divided into three
sports, , The first illustrates the longing
of the- world for the Messiah, prophe
sies His coming and announces His
birth; the secohdart is devoted to
the sufferings, death and. exaltation of
Christ and develops the spread and
"triumph of the Gospel; while the third
is occupied with the declaration of the
highest truths of doctrine faith in the
existence of God, flie surety of im
- mor.tallife, the resurrection- and the
.attainment of -aneternlty of happiness.
