Easter exhibition 2011 - Messiah

Enjoy Händel's Messiah for Easter

We follow up the great success we had with our Christmas calendar with a musical treat for Easter. Starting on Palm Sunday, we will publish arias, choruses and orchestral pieces from Handel's Messiah every day throughout the Holy Week.

In our Christmas calendars, we have included the occasional aria or chorus from Handel’s famous oratorio Messiah, such as the arias He shall feed his flock and He was despised and rejected on 7 December 2009, I know that my redeemer liveth sung by boy soprano Ernest Lough on 8 December 2009, and the orchestral movement Pifa on 2 December 2010.

But as mentioned in the calendar, the Messiah is not a Christmas themed oratorio. In fact only a small part of the whole oratorio has anything to do with Christmas. And although (parts of) the Messiah are often performed around Christmas time, it is not uncommon to stage full performances of the oratorio for Easter.

Therefore, we will during this Easter present more music from the Messiah than we have ever done, with arias, choruses and orchestral pieces from all three parts of Messiah made available to our readers.

All the music clips presented are from the same recording, which was made in London in 1906 and released on 78 records in various editions since then.

So follow us on through Easter and get your daily dose of Handel. Enjoy!

The records are professionally cleaned and digitized but we present them in urestored editions, complete with hissing and crackling. The Institute holds a conservation audio file in wave format, but the files that are presented here on the website are mp3 compressions of the original files.

We want to give a big thanks to Dag Trygve Henriksen who was a great help in selecting and writing about the recordings.

2011 Easter Exhibition.
I have recently found your web-site whilst doing research in Recordings of Handel's Messiah, particularly in the acoustic recording period.
I have several of the shellac records which were used in your exhibition, and others I have on Compact Disc. However there are quite a few which I have been unable to trace elsewhere.
I wonder whether there is a way of obtaining copies/downloads of my missing parts, so that I can complete this part of my research. I am willing to pay a reasonable sum per track (11 in all in the 1907 recording, plus the 5 1901-1903 tracks). Obviously I am unable to visit Stavanger in person.
I look forward to hearing from you, and seeing what other musical archive material will accompany future exhibitions.
