MESSIAH IN THE NEWS

NOTE:  Certainly George Frideric Handel has no idea when he was composing his unusual oratorio Messiah how far-reaching and universal its appeal would be.  Messiah has permeated almost every corner of the globe, and both he and his now-famous work receives almost daily mention in news outlets around the world.  Here I will post collected news articles about Handel and Messiah, as well as post any updates to this site.  Check back often!
