Abstract:

Handel's Messiah (spectacularly performed in Westminster Abbey, near Handel'a tomb in the Poet's Corner) characterized British taste and style toward the mid-eighteen century : dramatic and ornate yet religious, in English (nationalistic self-congratulation was the mood) and large in every way. The program sets the historical stage, explains who employed Handel and how his talents as composer and virtuoso organist were utilized, and discusses the work and importance of Arne and Boyce. Performances include sections from Handel's Samson and Jepthe, as well as selections from the works of Arne and Boyce.
