Handel Messiah, HWV 56
No other piece has become more closely associated with OSSCS than Georg Frideric Handel's most celebrated oratorio, Messiah. For over four decades, audiences have delighted in OSSCS's complete and uncut performances. A pivotal point in history, the life of Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah or "anointed one," is the subject of Handel's 1742 oratorio. A long-standing OSSCS performing tradition, the oratorio raised enough money at its Dublin premiere to procure the release of 142 indebted prisoners, who were thus given the opportunity to experience new life, a gift that countless Christians have experienced through their faith in Jesus over the past two millennia.
