Handel: Messiah
Additional Info:

Although it's a widely known fact, it still beggars belief that Handel could have completed the three-hour Messiah in a mere 24 days. He created many versions over the years depending on the needs of a particular performance, but the result has become one of the most well-known and appreciated works in Western choral literature. Movement after movement features unforgettable melodies, impeccable choral counterpoint, tremendous rhythmic variety and expressive word painting. It's no wonder that it's so popular. Hearing it in a stylistically aware period performance adds even more to the enjoyment.
