"Messiah” is an exemplar oratorio that narrated the sacred journey of Christ from birth, sacrifice until His resurrection. There were mixed emotions during its earlier days until multiple revisions followed. Eventually, it received massive financial success and even staged to a lot of places worldwide until it became a cultural musical piece.
Because of its memorable impact, there were a lot of documented re-compositions and adaptations, and still is a significant masterpiece, an apparent trademark of Handel that is hard to forget.
