Reviews - What do customers think about Handel's Messiah: A Celebration?

A Doctrinal dissertation  Jan 15, 2009
The author writes as though for other PhD's and I think most would find this a very pretentious book. That said the author does give good information on the Messiah starting in chapter 3 (71 pages into the book)and on the librettist Jennens (the Arthur , organiser arranger of the lyrics) The lyrics came first . He goes into detail on the reasons for the sutile changes in the scripture quotes and why. This book is very informative if something of a struggle to stick with I would skip the first two chapters . Chapter 3 is the reason for the three stars and worth the price of the book if you are a fan of Messiah by Handel/Jennens
