Quick Overview

A child prodigy and musical genius, he was inspired by God to write "The Messiah.".

Product Description

This review is from: George Frideric Handel, Composer of Messiah (Sowers) (Paperback)
An excellent, quick moving biography which begins interestingly with the comparison of Handel to Luther: while Luther's father desired that he study to become a lawyer, Handel's father desired the same, despite the fact that everything musical Handel touched proclaimed 'musick composer.' The powerful image of Handel's father burning the 7 year old's music-oriented toys is accompanied by repeating Matthew 5:29 attempting to align his father's opposition to having his son study music by saying "Let's see what Jesus would say about these matters.." The problem of knowing God's will is illustrated with both Handel and his father locating scripture verses to support their hope or know God's will throughout. Well placed sentences provide the world's events concisely along the same time line as each particular chapter of Handel's life.
