XRCD2 Messiah弥撒亚 VOL.II專輯名稱:FIM一听钟情-2CD()MESSIAH弥撒亚

德國作曲家韓德爾(1685-1759)大約在二十五歲的時候移居英國,後來就以倫敦為中心,從事各項音樂活動,他所寫的神劇-〔彌賽亞〕(救世主)是音樂史上的一個曠世巨作.它的結構分別由三個部份組成;第一部-有關基督降臨的寓言與實現,第二部-基督的受難與犧牲,第三部-基督的復活與永恆的生命,它的故事就是在描寫耶穌一生的故事.1741年,都柏林的慈善音樂團體委託韓德爾譜寫新作.韓德爾被這個由好友賈爾茲.傑能士撰寫的劇本所感動,奮力急書,在短短三個禮拜即完成譜曲的工作,隔年1742年在都柏林首演.
至今,〔彌賽亞〕是韓德爾最受大眾數迎的作品,全曲演出大約需時二個半小時.而〔〕(Chorus)是彌賽亞裡的重頭戲.曾有人說過這些每隔一些時候就出現的壯麗合唱,形成了〔彌賽亞〕的核,的柱,的背骨.這張專輯挑選了18首合唱曲,幾乎是劇中最重要的合唱曲.值得一提的是,1943年這齣神劇移師倫敦首演的那一場,喬治二世親臨聆賞.當進行到合唱唱出〔哈利路亞〕時,喬治二世感動得起立恭聽,所有的 民因而也都從座位站起來.相沿至今,一個不成文規定,每當音樂會唱到〔哈利路亞〕時,聽眾就都會自動站起來了.現在,當你在聽Hallelujah!的時候是不是也會感動得起立呢?
