This is Handel's massive drama of human redemption and the most popular oratorio in the history of Western music. After 250 years (1741), it has the power to move listeners spiritually and musically. Drawing from both Testaments, Handel's "Messiah" has spawned groups of listeners dedicated to its performance. Musically, "Messiah" ranges from madrigal to aria, with an unvarying transparency of expression, imbued with humility and grace."Magnum Opus" is a series for anyone seeking a greater familiarity with the cornerstones of Western Classical Music--operatic, choral and symphonic. Always passionate, down-to-earth, and authoritative on the works and their creators, "Magnum Opus" is an indispensable resource for anyone's musical library and the perfect gift for the music-lover in your life.
