DON'T READ THIS because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you dont post this to at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes the worst day of your life will be tomorrow. When your done press f6 in the comment section, your lover's name will come in big letters. This is scary because It actually works
I know this is totally BS because they forgot the apostrophe in don't.

Ditto. the first line sounded interesting so I clicked on more.... and nothing.
The words they used to have for the songs are gone as well. Paying more for less it seems.

In the absence of a bio, read Messiah: The Little-Known Story of Handel's Beloved Oratorio by Tim Slover, Silverleaf Press.

Thank goodness I am not a musician! I can enjoy each and every fluid note without criticism. Handel and a tympani solo caused me to marry.
Now I do wish I had married the church mouse!

Handel was the first to inspire me to love classical music. His music made me feel more deeply my love of God and Nature, too.
I have expanded my love of classical music over the years until now I would just die without Mahler and his music makes me feel emotional and I have evolved to being an atheist. I still love Handel, too. Now I love Science, Love and the Golden Rule.

Glad to have the music here, all beautiful and clean things are from God and copy His personality, haters may enjoy hell?Noise! Banging and screaming out of key!

chockophase 3: Handel was forced by nothing but financial necessity. Let go your bigotry and read his bio.

chokophase, I don't know which Music History Books you have studied, but your hypothesis is the exception rather than the rule.

Artists of past times were often forced to make works for the church, or privately on religious themes. Such things were inescapable. It has no automatic bearing on the personal beliefs of the artist. EVER.

D'oh!

Handel creates elegant works that feel stable and grounded in this earthly world, and yet gloriously, divinely inspired.
Report as inappropriate
His keyboard writing deserves way more attention. It gets overshadowed by the choral and orchestral music.

The religious works of Bach, Mozart & Handel brought me back to a belief in God. Fun to sing, too.

On the right, American Evangelism is BS and has killed the church. On the other side, the left has killed the church by elevating current issues over primacy of message (they're sneaky doing this..watch carefully). And science is making the same mistake the church was making a thousand years ago in tying to prove everything with a single theory. Time, etc. a bit of an embarrassmen t for them, truly. Thankfully, Handel, in all his religious/sc i e n t i f i c ignorance knew none of this and could create.

What a glorious blessing that is Handel, his works and to whom in gratitude they point. Imagine all of eternity our senses being filled with such music. This is only a foreshadow of the great fellowship Christ has bought for those that love Him, whether they know it yet or will soon see!

Handel left Venice for England and became an English citizen. He gained world wide recognition. He wrote 30 oratorios and close to 50 operas for the Royal Academy of Music .London's first Italian opera company . He composed the Messiah in about 3 weeks not leaving his room or eating much until the final note was written. He truly was inspired when he wrote this work. Near the end of his life he was nearly blind. He die Apr 14 1759 and was buried in Westminster Abbey. This is a very short bio

=Handel on February 23, 1685, to Georg and Dorothea Handel of Halle, Saxony, Germany. From an early age, Handel longed to study music, but his father objected, doubting that music was a realistic source of income. In fact, his father would not even permit him to own a musical instrument. His mother was, however, supportive, and encouraged him to develop his musical talent. With her cooperation, Handel took to practicing on the sly.
When Handel was 7 he got to play the organ at the Kings co
