One of the most magnificent achievements in music, Handel's Messiah is an annual holiday season must for music lovers everywhere. Hearing its perfection is always a moving, emotional and resonant experience. This iconic, centuries-old oratorio has come to be known as Handel's masterpiece. Messiah has become a Christmas tradition, even though in 1742 it was introduced as a work commemorating Easter. A soaring showpiece for chorus, soloists (including Princeton, New Jersey's own Tenor William Burden) and orchestra, considered one of the most majestic compositions in Western music, Messiah is a soul-stirring way to celebrate Advent.
