1741: English-language oratorio “Messiah” completed

George Frideric Handel completed the Messiah in 1741 and it was first performed in Dublin on 13 April 1742 and received its London premiere nearly a year later. After an initially modest public reception, the oratorio gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music.

The Great Music Hall in Fishamble Street, Dublin, where Messiah was first performed.
