Handel: Messiah

As legend has it, divine inspiration may have played a hand in Handel’s 1741 composition of what has become his most famous work. Not only did he write the massive score in just over three weeks’ time – there is a long-held story that the popular “Hallelujah” chorus was itself inspired by a vision of heaven and its angels revealed to Handel as he wrote it. VSO Chorus Director Robert Shoup conducts the VSO Chorus and four fabulous soloists for this holiday masterpiece.
