Composed in three weeks in 1741, Messiah has been a huge success ever since its very first performance to a packed house in Dublin in 1742. It narrates the whole life of Christ, from birth through crucifixion to resurrection, alternating lyrical arias with rousing choruses, including the famous Hallelujah chorus.
