Handels Messiah Tickets Information
Handel conducted Messiah many times and, as was his custom, often altered the music to suit the needs of the singers and orchestra he had available to him for each performance. In consequence, no single version can be regarded as the "authentic" one. Many more variations and rearrangements were added in subsequent centuriesa notable arrangement was one by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, translated into German.
