Baroque composer George Handel was born 2/23/1685, in Halle, Germany. In 1704 he made his debut as an opera composer w/ Almira. When Italian operas fell out of fashion, he started composing oratorios, including Messiah. In addition to his oratorios, Handel’s concerti grossi, anthems & orchestral pieces garnered him fame & success. Among the most noted were Water Music (1717), Coronation Anthems (1727), Trio Sonatas op.2 (1722–33), Trio Sonatas op.5 (1739), & Music for Royal Fireworks.

He was the Andrew Loyd Weber of the early 1700s. Wrote for an amusement park--and the King. Kenneth Clark has a great page on him in Civilization .

If along life’s thorny way, we can cultivate a discriminati n g , refined consciousnes s as we, consequently , become ever-more enabled to conscientise others into greater and better acts of kindness.

I have not listened to music for awhile
And I did not realize how much I have missed it.

By the 21st century those people who insist on politicizing classical music should get free downloads from the Trumpetto mail bag. Uh oh! I politicized. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Please enjoy the music. Sermisy? Tallis? Couperin? von Bingen, Lully?

Please leave 20th century politics OUT OF 17th and 18th century music. Or any classical music for that matter. Give me a break. Go read a history book, and listen to some great music.

Here to second all these comments. First snippet sounded interesting, and surprisingly affirming of not merely Christ's life and death, but even His resurrection . Came here to read the rest of the bio and got only disappointme n 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.
