Since its debut in 1742, Handel’s Messiah has been performed around the world for more than 250 years. One of the most renowned pieces of English sacred music, the work focuses on the central tenets of Christianity from the Old Testament prophecies of the coming of the Messiah, to the New Testament stories of His birth, death, and resurrection. Originally associated with Easter, this work has since become a Christmas tradition.
