George Frideric Handel

George Frederic Handel was a German-English Baroque composer (February 23, 1685 – April 14, 1759) famous for his operas, oratorios, and concertos. He moved to London 1710 and eventually became the court composer/musician of King George I and later King George II.

In 1741, Handel’s Messiah was first performed in Dublin, Ireland. Messiah, is an oratorio which is usually performed at Easter. The most famous movement from this work is the "Hallelujah Chorus." Excerpts of this movement are used all the time today in cartoons, commercials, and movies usually to signify victory, understanding, or something going correctly for a character. That most definitely was not the original intention/meaning of the composer, as it was suppose to have a little more religious significance. Nevertheless it is fairly well-known to most.
