About

The resounding success Handelís Messiah encountered the first time it was presented in Dublin in 1742 set the scene for its future. The oratorio depicts the Sacred History of Christ in three parts: the Nativity, Christís Passion and Resurrection, and finally, Redemption. The alternation of airs and choirs is perfect and Handelís musical knowledge infallible. Messiah quickly became the composerís most successful work. It was played thirty-six times during his lifetime and has continued to be presented to the present day, embodying just how majestic and sublime music can be. During its premiŤre in London, King George II was so moved by the legendary Hallelujah! chorus that he could not help but leap to his feet, with the entire audience following his lead. In the sumptuous Royal Chapel at Versailles, Hervť Niquet leads four impassioned soloists and a tremulous choir to the height of Handelís most resplendent baroque edifice!
