The Story of Handel's Messiah - The Story of Handel's Messiah expresses Handel's love of God and his passion for writing music that would deliver scripture to the masses in a largely illiterate world. When used in a public school setting some edits may need to be made.
"The idea of composing an oratorio based on Jennens libretto intrigued Handel as illiteracy in his day was widespread and copies of the Bible were expensive and rare. It was his hope that his oratorio would bring the good news of the Scripture to everyone that heard his music."
