Reviews - What do customers think about Messiah: The Little-Known Story of Handel's Beloved Oratorio?

Nice little book, great CD  Jun 23, 2008
CD with the oratorio and book with a short story of how it came to be. In about 80 pages the author situates the context of the story, the main characters and the circumstances in which the oratorio was created. The language could have been a little down-to-earth to make it sound more intimate or familiar, more appropriate with the story. However, it's worth the price; and the CD is great.
 
A fun read for Messiah lovers  Jan 18, 2008
This is a short but fun read for those who might be interested in Handel the composer, and the human background behind the creation of "Messiah."
 
Beautiful book, beautifully written  Oct 30, 2007
Really well done! This book is so nice I am going to purchase more for gifts.
