"And enjoyment today this one expression music has had such an effect the many atheists in the past as well as today have stated very candidly but of all the arguments for god the one that compels them the most to believe in god is the argument from the music that was created by Jesus is like Bach and others you see much of this music gives god glory and much of this music has Jesus as the central figure and during the Christmas season there's one particular work that overshadows that transcends all the rest it's a piece of music that well informed we would call an oratorio now before I divulge the name of this mysterious piece let me briefly explain what it oratorio is nor Torio is simply a musical setting for religious taxed as performed by solo singers a choir and orchestra just imagine just imagine an orchestra with the choir in the back and soloists in the front and an oratorio is really a dramatic work but it's important no this but it will not have the same visuals as an opera as you may know operas have a stage the scenery in very sets and the singers have costumes this is not the case with a north Torio all the performers an oratorio are dressed appropriately for performance but they are not wearing costumes now as far as musical structure oratorios like symphonies ally concertos like sonatas have multiple movements and because oratorios historically are based on medical text you can imagine that there would be lots of interval vigil pieces separate pieces that make up the whole of an oratorio the most oratorios are religious in nature and that they are musical work set to religious texts there are a growing number especially written in the modern era their non religious and secular in nature but frankly I have to say they're not as interesting to listen to no my and our astute listeners have already figured out where I'm going with all of this and if you have be patient just be patient and stay with me because I want our listeners to think of a particular year in the past when your machinations way back to the late seventeenth century can you do that I know it's hard I know fashions are very strange back then but just imagine what you're my way back to the year sixteen eighty five that's a long time ago sixteen eighty five no one could be possibly import about that particular year well I am so glad you asked that question let me tell you what's so special about that year three Titans of music were born that year and never was there a year in music history that has three names born that presented the caliber of brilliance ingenious as this particular year you could say sixteen eighty five was actually a very good year for music now who were these Titans I'm referring to the first one George Frederick Handel the second the giant of all yo Han Sebastian Bach and then third Domenico Scarlatti these three composers role born during the broke period that's a period that lasts between sixteen hundred and seventeen fifty a very long period of a hundred and fifty years and yes there are other great composers who lived during that time composers like Claudio Monteverdi arc on July Carelli Henry Purcell and Tony of of all the George believe Telamon I'm John Philippe run mall just to name a few but to have the top two greatest baroque composers born in the same year not to mention the fact they're also consider the top two greatest composers of all time and in addition to them having to medical Scarlatti who is also considered and the top list of baroque composers is well without drifting into hyperbole frankly amazing now there's so much I can talk about regarding the brook period but for our program today I can only focus on the one composer and the one piece as the center of my thought today the composer question is one of the three that I just mentioned he is George Frederick Handel now some say handle I had to make a correction about that when George went to England and he did go to England he sort of England's anglicized his name and so the English like to pronounce their words by fanatics and so in the German when you spell H. E. N. D. E. L. T. L. should say there's two dots above the a that produces any sound so the English would actually spell his name HP and D. L. but actually it's H. A. N. but pronounced as the word hand not hand now it's a common stake we make I know my great teacher many many many years ago correct me and her nice kindness to me but it's stored for candles if you hear me saying that I'm not mispronouncing it there is actual historical precedent for it but if you said handle it would not bother me at all yeah the mysterious piece that he wrote the one that we're really looking at is this one you know what to drum roll please if I have one the messiah oratorio now if I could make a list of the seven crowns of music the greatest pieces musically spiritually generationally this one piece the messiah would be one of them no what is this masterpiece in or and why is it so important well first I want you to know but do you think you may not heard this work the truth is you have well maybe not the whole work it's quite long but most probably one particular piece that is universally known and that's the Hallelujah chorus now more on that in a moment let's first talk about the man himself behind the music who was George Frederick Handel well first hand was born as I said in the year sixteen eighty five and hell Germany his father was a barber surgeon and he really didn't like music and and have a love for it at all and though he saw the musical gifting of his son he wanted his son to study law and not music but in the end music one out I can understand that fathers that they'll handle did study the law at the university of hell for about a year but dropped out to become a church organist in mort's Berg and by the way he was a Lutheran but he was more tracked into the theater than to being a church organist and so he left his position to go to the city of Homburg Germany with the center of the attic life really actually florist and once he was there Homburg begin composing and and actually making connections and this actually lead to an interesting story want to share with you about handle that I want to talk about when he was in Hamburg you see while he was there in the theater he met another talented composer keyboardist actual singer and his name was Johann Matthiessen your Mathison wrote an opera called Cleopatra it just turns out that Matheson was also going to be singing one of the lead roles of the performance of the sovereign Homburg and at this performance Honda was on duty performing on the harpsichord anyone mark Madsen he was thinking what in the lead roles want to show the audience how versatile he was in so he descended into the orchestra or handle was playing on the harpsichord and it tended to push him off the harpsichord to play himself a good you could imagine that you'll on Matheson was a show off but hell didn't want him to do that and did the let him know what happened was a fight broke out despite let them wrong around the theater on the stage and moved all the way through the theater with the audience cheering them on and I actually went out.
