As libretto for this grand oratorio relating the life of Christ among men, George Frederick Handel decided to use texts taken directly from the Old and New Testaments. This Messiah didn’t immediately meet with the approval of the London public but, as the composer regularly gave the proceeds from the concerts to the Foundling Hospital for abandoned children, the English soon made it a popular concert to attend during the Christmas holidays.
