Handel’s beloved masterpiece Messiah has a backstory that we need to know about.
Aspects of the setting of the text and Handel’s investments will be explored and discussed, so that we may come to terms with colonial history and cultural attitudes of his time. Andy Clark and Peter Sykes will lead a discussion about what it may have meant in Handel’s time and what it can mean for us now.
