Originally Handel was Händel. But the German composer was welcomed in England with open arms. Thus he could leave out the Umlaut from his name. The great oratorio Messiah is Handel's best known work. This is a selection of highlights, of course the 'Hallelujah' is included! Performed by the Choir of King's College, Cambridge.
