KEENE CHORALE - HANDEL'S MESSIAH
George Frederic Handel’s Messiah – Parts I, II, III Messiah is an English-language oratorio composed in 1741 by Handel with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens. It was first performed on April 13, 1742, and in London nearly a year later. The oratorio first had a modest public reception, but it soon gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music. The Keene Chorale will present one performance with orchestra and soloists at the new Park Theatre in Jaffrey on December 11, 7 PM. Maestro Manson promises to present a Messiah for the holiday season like none other!
