  • Handel's Messiah at the Palau de la Música Catalana

    Handel's Messiah at the Palau de la Música Catalana

    With the Messiah, Handel moved away from his other oratorios, which were of a clear Italian influence, to embrace ancient passions and German cantatas. Composed in London in 1741 in just three weeks, the Messiah has traditionally been linked with Christmas, although the oratorio really runs through the life of Jesus. This month of December, the Palau de la Música Catalana will be the wonderful setting of this magnificent work, by the Cor de Cambra del Palau de la Música Catalana and the Orchestre de l'Opéra Royal de Versalles.
