George Handel’s sacred oratorio Messiah is without question one of the most popular works in the choral/orchestral repertoire today. In what has become an almost indispensable Christmas tradition, this work is a perennial favorite at First Presbyterian Church of Coral Springs, 2251 Riverside Dr., Coral Springs. Combining choir, soloists, and orchestra, this work beautifully portrays the life and work of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Handel scholar, Robert Myers, wrote: “logically Handel’s masterpiece should be called Redemption, for its author celebrates the idea of redemption, rather than the personality of Christ.” For the believer and non-believer alike, Handel’s Messiah is undoubtedly a majestic musical masterpiece.
