G.F. Handel – Why Do The Nations So Furiously Rage Together
(or Frederick) Handel was a German, later British, Baroque composer who spent the bulk of his career in London, becoming well known for his act of classical music compositions.
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.
“Why do the nations so furiously rage together”, is a scriptural verse, taken from Psalm 2:1-2
Why do the nations rage and the people imagine a vain thing. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His anointed saying: Let us break their bonds assunder and cast away their cords from us.
