Georg Friedrich Händel’s (1685–1759) "Messiah" is the most widely performed oratorio in the world and often heard in cities all over the world, especially during the Christmas season. The "Messiah“ has become a sort of myth, a monument of the western culture – this is the story of Jesus in its broadest and deepest sense, as a concentrate of the New Testament, which captures something from the very nature of Christianity.
