Have you ever experienced goose bumps when you hear beautiful music? Does a lovely melody take you to a special place? Whether you are a music aficionado or a music novice, you undoubtedly have heard Handel’s Messiah.
One of the world’s most beloved oratorios, Handel’s Messiah has stood the test of time and is synonymous with Christmas.
But do you know how it came to be? Frideric Handel composed The Messiah in 1741. He referenced the King James Bible’s in his account of Jesus as the Messiah called Christ. One of his initial performances was a charity concert for Prisoners Debt Relief, Mercer’s Hospital, and the Charitable Infirmary. After a modest public reception, Handel’s Messiah gained popularity and, over time, eventually became most one of the most beloved and frequently performed choral works in Western music.
The Charleston Symphony Orchestra (CSO) will be performing this magnificent oratorio December 4th in Summerville.
Treat yourself this Christmas season to a relaxing and rejuvenating stay at Flowertown Bed and Breakfast and enjoy the Charleston Symphony Orchestra’s beautiful rendition of The Messiah.
