Three Choruses from ''The Messiah'' for string quartet (score and parts) by George Frideric Handel

Arranged and edited by Graham Bastable. Published by International

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, and his heavenly glorification. This International release contains string quartet arrangements of three choruses: the dance-like, fugal 'And the Glory of the Lord!', the dramatic, Italianate madrigal `For Unto Us a Child is Born', and the famous, coronation-style anthem `Hallelujah'. Contains score and parts. Intermediate level, Grade 3.
