The Messiah (cello/bass part) by George Frideric Handel

Published by Schirmer

George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) was one of the greatest composers of the Baroque Era. Born and trained in Halle, Germany, he spent most of career in London. He is perhaps best known for his operas and oratorios, though his instrumental music, like ''Music for the Royal Fireworks'', is also renowned. His high baroque style combined elements of the German polyphonic tradition and the clarity and melody of the Italian baroque. His great dramatic skill left a lasting impact on later composers.

Handel's three-part oratorio ''The Messiah'' is perhaps his most beloved masterpiece. It is an extended meditation on Jesus Christ, covering prophesies of his birth, the passion on the cross (culminating in the famous `Hallelujah' chorus), and his heavenly glorification. Today, it remains a firm favorite with amateur and professional choral groups alike. Cello/bass part only. Other parts sold separately . Intermediate-advanced level, Grade 4.
