  • About the Edition

    During his lifetime, the sounds of Handel"s music reached from court to theater, echoed in cathedrals, and filled crowded taverns, but the man himself - known to most as the composer of Messiah - is a bit of a mystery. In search of the private man behind the public figure, Ellen T. Harris has spent years tracking down letters, diaries, personal accounts, legal cases, and other documents. The result is a tightly woven tapestry of London in the first half of the eighteenth century, one that interlaces vibrant descriptions of Handel"s music with stories of loyalty, cunning, and betrayal.
