Item Description...
Composer of Messiah Listening to, or participating in, the singing of Handel's Messiah is now as much a part of Christmas celebrations as the buying of gifts. And that experience will be richer yet for people who realize the series of miracles that were required to bring this oratorio into being. While a lad of seven, Handel's barber-surgeon father assured him that he would rather his son's fingers be cut off than that he become a musician. To emphasize this, he burned all of the boy's musical toys in the fireplace. Nonetheless, young George Frideric continued to practice on a muted clavichord hidden in the attic. Later, Handel had to overcome a paralysis of his right arm. Shortly before working on Messiah, he was so pressed for money he feared debtor's prison. Yet Providence brought him to that momentous time in his life. After composing the "Hallelujah Chorus," he exclaimed through tears to a servant, "I did think I did see all heaven before me, and the great God Himself!" At the first London performance of the Messiah, King George II rose to his feet during the singing of the "Hallelujah Chorus," and since he was King, the rest of the audience rose with him. Thus began the custom which continues to this day. Altogether, Handel composed as much music as the combined works of Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig Beethoven. Much of his music still lives to glorify the God whom Handel served with his great talent.

Publishers Description
A child prodigy and musical genius, he was inspired by God to write "The Messiah."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Sir Handel-child prodigy,faithful Christian opera composer  Apr 28, 2008
An excellent, quick moving biography which begins interestingly with the comparison of Handel to Luther: while Luther's father desired that he study to become a lawyer, Handel's father desired the same, despite the fact that everything musical Handel touched proclaimed 'musick composer.' The powerful image of Handel's father burning the 7 year old's music-oriented toys is accompanied by repeating Matthew 5:29 attempting to align his father's opposition to having his son study music by saying "Let's see what Jesus would say about these matters.." The problem of knowing God's will is illustrated with both Handel and his father locating scripture verses to support their hope or know God's will throughout. Well placed sentences provide the world's events concisely along the same time line as each particular chapter of Handel's life.
Handel's father is convinced to allow him to study music when a higher authority, the Duke, orders him to do so after hearing the talented child play the clavichord. The tumultuous years to follow are told with historical and political details for England, Germany, France and Italy. Handel never married (and no details are provided as to why--except that he was extremely busy writing operas and struggling to avoid debtors' prison--the gruesome specifics so frightfully described... one's spine prickles) but lovingly provided for his mother even while he lived and worked far from home. While the statement 'Luther and Calvin were good friends' is not grounded with facts, on the whole, this is a well written book or read-aloud for ages 7 and up. Young readers, especially boys, will appreciate the story when Dr. Handel removes a knife from a young man's stomach, a knife which had been accidentally swallowed over a year prior, which many other famous doctors had failed to remove.
