“Hallelujah Chorus” George F. Handel

George Frideric Handel (1685 -1759) wrote this entire oratorio in 24 days. Now-a-days, many melodies borrow tunes from this piece. According to legend, Handel heard the music from angels playing into his ear. The lyrics are based on biblical passages as Handel was trying to depict the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
