From the Back Cover
The best-known and most beloved large-scale musical work in the English-speaking world, Messiah was first performed in Dublin over 200 years ago to benefit local charities. Since that time, it has given millions of performers their primary experience in singing classical music. Today it is the supreme example of the English oratorio. A meditation on the life of Christ, the work is a brilliant amalgam of traditional Italian opera, English anthem, and German Passion.
Reprinted from the authoritative edition prepared by noted musical scholar Alfred Mann, this inexpensive, full-score edition will be welcomed by students, musicians, singers, and music lovers who will want to study and savor every detail of this glorious masterpiece.

Masterful music in a high quality book and at a more-than-reasonable price. Do not delay in acquiring this score.

But when I hear it, I'd like to sing along. Since I'm 72 years old, I no longer know it by heart, and need the score to sing along with the recorded music. I have the Messiah on CD,
The idea came to me a couple years ago to get a score, because there is one church in town where they have a community Messiah, but one needs their own score. In Mobile AL, there are sometimes a presentation of the piece, but not always.
Anyone who finds themselves in the same boat, would like this because it does not take up a huge amount of room in the bookcase, but is large enough if you are familiar, to follow.
