Handel composed Messiah in just four weeks of feverish activity, in the summer of 1741, and the work was first performed to great critical acclaim in the spring of 1742. Since then, it has been performed numerous times and has become a popular part of the choral repertoire. This is particularly true in Great Britain, where for the last two hundred years, regular performances by choirs up and down the country have given it the status of a national treasure.
