Handelby Kerry Murphy, Anthony Hicks (Editor)
Handel has long been one of the most loved composers in English speaking countries and his great oratorio The Messiah is probably the best-known work in classical repertoire in many parts of England and the Commonwealth. This study of the man and his work by Dr. Stanley Sadie, an authority on the Handelian era, gives a graphic picture of the German who, in mid-career, adopted England as his native country and became the leading figure in the second great age of English music.
