Quick Overview

The popular oratorio Messiah, G.F. Handel's best-known work, has a classic baroque overture: a slow introduction (Grave) followed by a faster fugal episode (Allegro Moderato). Joseph Compello's arrangement is remarkably faithful to the original and it will be useful both as a holiday selection and a general repertoire piece. Duration: 4'
