By the early 1730s public taste was beginning to change, and the popular success of John Gay and Johann Christoph Pepusch’s The Beggar’s Opera (first performed in 1728) had heralded a spate of English-language ballad-operas that mocked the pretensions of Italian opera.

In “Glory to God”, Handel marked the entry of the trumpets as da lontano e un poco piano, meaning “quietly, from afar”; his original intention had been to place the brass offstage (in disparte) at this point, to highlight the effect of distance. In 1732 Handel brought a revised and expanded version of Esther to the King’s Theatre, Haymarket, where members of the royal family attended a glittering premiere on 6 May. Handel wrote the movement in both 11-bar and extended 32-bar forms; according to Burrows, either will work in performance. There was little dissent from Prout’s approach, and when Chrysander’s scholarly edition was published in the same year, it was received respectfully as “a volume for the study” rather than a performing edition, being an edited reproduction of various of Handel’s manuscript versions. Elements of this version later became familiar to British audiences, incorporated into editions of the score by editors including Ebenezer Prout. Charles Jennens was born around 1700, into a prosperous landowning family whose lands and properties in Warwickshire and Leicestershire he eventually inherited. In 1735 Handel received the text for a new oratorio named Saul from its librettist Charles Jennens, a wealthy landowner with musical and literary interests. 17. However, Prout started from the assumption that a faithful reproduction of Handel’s original score would not be practical: [T]he attempts made from time to time by our musical societies to give Handel’s music as he meant it to be given must, however earnest the intention, and however careful the preparation, be foredoomed to failure from the very nature of the case.

In the late 20th and early 21st centuries the trend has been towards reproducing a greater fidelity to Handel’s original intentions, although “big Messiah” productions continue to be mounted. Its success encouraged Handel to write two more oratorios (Deborah and Athalia), and all three oratorios were performed to large and appreciative audiences at the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford in mid-1733. Recordings on LP and CD were preponderantly of the latter type, and the large scale Messiah came to seem old-fashioned. The effort of writing so much music in so short a time was not unusual for Handel and his contemporaries; Handel commenced his next oratorio, Samson, within a week of finishing Messiah, and completed his draft of this new work in a month. 14b. 44 chorus: hallelujah!

By the end of the 1970s the quest for authenticity had extended to the use of period instruments and historically correct styles of playing them. In 1789, Mozart was commissioned by Baron Gottfried van Swieten and the Gesellschaft der Associierten to re-orchestrate several works by Handel, including Messiah. The first published score of Messiah was issued in 1767, eight years after Handel’s death, though this was based on relatively early manuscripts and included none of Handel’s later revisions.

Because Handel’s main creative concern was still with opera, he did not write the music for Saul until 1738, in preparation for his 1738–39 theatrical season. In the Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, David Scott writes, “the edition at first aroused suspicion on account of its attempts in several directions to break the crust of convention surrounding the work in the British Isles.”  By the time of Shaw’s death in 1996, The Times described his edition as “now in universal use”.

At the time, Messiah was still somewhat unknown to London audiences, but the concert was so well received that Handel was invited back the next year, where he performed the entire Messiah oratorio.

Whether Handel originally intended to perform Messiah in Dublin is uncertain; he did not inform Jennens of any such plan, for the latter wrote to Holdsworth on 2 December 1741: “… it was some mortification to me to hear that instead of performing Messiah here he has gone into Ireland with it.” After arriving in Dublin on 18 November 1741, Handel arranged a subscription series of six concerts, to be held between December 1741 and February 1742 at the Great Music Hall, Fishamble Street. After the celebratory tone of Christ’s reception into heaven, marked by the choir’s D major acclamation “Let all the angels of God worship him”, the “Whitsun” section proceeds through a series of contrasting moods—serene and pastoral in “How beautiful are the feet”, theatrically operatic in “Why do the nations so furiously rage”—towards the Part II culmination of “Hallelujah”. Each scene is a collection of individual numbers or “movements” which take the form of recitatives, arias and choruses. At the end of the century, Sir Frederick Bridge and T. W.
