Handel - Messiah "He was despised" Alfred Deller
Handel - Messiah "He was despised" Alfred Deller Hi-res & stereo: www.youtube.com George Frideric Handel Messiah, HWV 56 (1741) Oratorio in three acts Aria #23: "He Was Despised" From act 2, aria for Alto solo libretto by Charles Jennens Messiah (HWV 56) is an oratorio by George Frideric Handel based on a libretto by Charles Jennens.

The very well known chorus, Hallelujah, is part of Handel's Messiah. Handel composed Messiah in just 24 days. 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 centuries—a notable arrangement was one by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, translated into German. Messiah is scored for SATB soloists, SATB chorus, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 trumpets, timpani, strings, and basso continuo. The Mozart arrangement expands the orchestra to 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, strings, and organ. The libretto was compiled by Charles Jennens and consists of fragments of verses from the King James Bible.
