DOWNLOAD “FOR UNTO US A CHILD IS BORN” BY G.F. HANDEL
Here, we share one of the most popular songs from the George Frederick’s collections titled “For Unto Us A Child is Born”. The song is majorly sang by choirs, music groups, and ochestras during the christmas season.
“For Unto Us a Child is Born”, is a piece from Handel’s Oratorio “The Messiah”.
Messiah is an English-language oratorio composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel, with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible, and from the Coverdale Psalter, the version of the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer.
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.
