Classical Classroom, Episode 32: The Making of Handel's Messiah with Robert Simpson

Handel's Messiah is a beloved Christmas favorite. But, as Robert Simpson, founder and artistic director of Houston Chamber Choir, tells us, it is oh-so-much more than the "Hallelujah" chorus. Like, 250 pages more. All of which we cover in this half-hour episode. Just kidding!

Audio production by Todd "Jolly Old Saint Toddolas" Hulslander with stockings hung by the mixing board by Dacia Clay.

Music used in this episode:

- George Frideric Handel, Messiah, HWV 56
