Hallelujah, the new edition audiobook is the remarkable story of one of the greatest events in musical history, the creation of George Frederic Handel's masterpiece, "Messiah". Composed in just twenty-four days, Handel's Grand Oratorio, which rendered him immortal, was birthed in the darkest and most desperate hours of his life.
His health was failing. Critics ridiculed him. Creditors hounded him. Enemies persecuted him. Pride had nearly destroyed him. Yet, out of Handel's night emerged the dawn of "Messiah". Anyone who has thrilled at hearing the Hallelujah Chorus will feel "profound attachment" to Handel's story of hope and redemption as timeless and poignant as the music itself.

Hallelujah is a must!
This is an enjoyable book that draws you into the story quickly. Moving, cleaver, playful, stirring, deceit, tender and the musical background sound effects delightful. Perfect way to listen to this historical fiction of Handel and hear his music. Reading it would not be the same.
Rachel because of her sacrifice and love for her family.
It should be made into a film for sure.
A gift to the world.
