For many, Handel’s Messiah is what people listen to most at Christmastime, but did you know it was originally written for Easter? The scope of this musical masterpiece spans the entirety of Scripture with the central point resting on the birth our Savior and culminating in God’s ultimate victory over sin.
Charles Morris explored the place where Christian composer George Frideric Handel lived and wrote Messiah, the oratorio that would later become known as his greatest work.
