Classical Music from the Bible – Bach, Verdi and Handel for New Year’s Day

For More Christmas or Bible themed classical music click on the following playlist videos.

Messiah (HWV 56)[1] 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 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.[n 1]

Handel’s reputation in England, where he had lived since 1713, had been established through his compositions of Italian opera. He turned to English oratorio in the 1730s, in response to changes in public taste; Messiah was his sixth work in this genre. Although its structure resembles that of conventional opera, it is not in dramatic form; there are no impersonations of characters and very little direct speech. Instead, Jennens’s text is an extended reflection on Jesus Christ as Messiah, moving from the prophetic phrases of Isaiah and others, through the Incarnation, Passion and Resurrection of Christ to his ultimate glorification in heaven.

Handel wrote Messiah for modest vocal and instrumental forces, with optional settings for many of the individual numbers. In the years after his death the work was adapted for performance on a much larger scale, with giant orchestras and choirs. In other efforts to update it, its orchestration was revised and amplified by (among others) Mozart. In the late 20th and early 21st centuries the trend has been towards authenticity; most contemporary performances show a greater fidelity towards Handel’s original intentions, although „big Messiah” productions continue to be mounted. Since a near-complete version was issued on 78 rpm discs in 1928, the work has been recorded many times.

From – „He [Handel] would frequently declare the pleasure he felt in setting the Scriptures to music, and how contemplating the many sublime passages in the Psalms had contributed to his edification.”
—Sir John Hawkins

By 1741 George Frideric Handel was a failure. Bankrupted, in great physical pain, and the victim of plots to sabotage his career, the once-great opera composer scheduled a „farewell” appearance in London in April. To the London elite, it looked like this „German nincompoop,” as he was once called, was through. That summer, however, he composed Messiah, which not only brought him back into the spotlight, but is still deemed by some to be „an epitome of Christian faith.”

Giuseppe Verdi’s Nabucco

Nabucco (short for Nabucodonosor, English Nebuchadnezzar) is an opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi, based on the Biblical story and the 1836 play by Auguste Anicet-Bourgeois and Francis Cornue. It is Verdi’s third opera and the one which is considered to have permanently established his reputation as a composer.Nabucco follows the plight of the Jews as they are assaulted, conquered, and subsequently exiled from their homeland by the Babylonian King Nabucco (in English, Nebuchadnezzar). The historical events are used as background for a romantic and political plot. (source Wikipedia)

J S Bach – Psalm 51 (BWV 1083)

J S Bach – Psalm 51 (BWV 1083) Documentary and performance. Skip forward to just before 17 minutes for the start of the (marvellous) performance. The documentary is in Italian with French subtitles.

„At a reverent performance of music, God is always at hand with his gracious presence.”

When he was 48, Johann Sebastian Bach acquired a copy of Luther’s three-volume translation of the Bible. He pored over it as if it were a long-lost treasure. He underlined passages, corrected errors in the text and commentary, inserted missing words, and made notes in the margins. Near 1 Chronicles 25 (a listing of Davidic musicians) he wrote, „This chapter is the true foundation of all God-pleasing music.” At 2 Chronicles 5:13 (which speaks of temple musicians praising God), he noted, „At a reverent performance of music, God is always at hand with his gracious presence.” (source

If you don’t have Italian but can read French at secondary (high school) level then I think you’ll find the documentary very manageable and very interesting. Enjoy 🙂

♫ Händel: Samson, sacred oratorio in three acts

Handel began its composition immediately after completing Messiah on 14 September 1741. It uses a libretto by Newburgh Hamilton, who based it on Milton’s Samson Agonistes, which in turn was based on the figure Samson in Chapter 16 of the Book of Judges. Handel completed the first act on 20 September 1741, the second act on 11 October that year and the whole work on 29 October. Shortly after that he travelled to Dublin to put on the premiere of Messiah, returning to London at the end of August 1742 and thoroughly revising Samson.The premiere was given at Covent Garden in London on 18 February 1743, with the incidental organ music probably the recently-completed concerto in A major (HWV 307).)

Nasterea lui Isus – Luca 2:4-14

Iosif s’a suit şi el din Galilea, din cetatea Nazaret, ca să se ducă în Iudea, în cetatea lui David, numită Betleem, -pentrucă era din casa şi din seminţia lui David, – să se înscrie împreună cu Maria, logodnica lui, care era însărcinată. Pe cînd erau ei acolo, s’a împlinit vremea cînd trebuia să nască Maria. Şi a născut pe Fiul ei cel întîi născut, L -a înfăşat în scutece şi L -a culcat într’o iesle, pentrucă în casa de poposire nu era loc pentru ei.

În ţinutul acela erau nişte păstori, cari stăteau afară în cîmp, şi făceau de strajă noaptea împrejurul turmei lor. Şi iată că un înger al Domnului s’a înfăţişat înaintea lor, şi slava Domnului a strălucit împrejurul lor. Ei s’au înfricoşat foarte tare. 10 Dar îngerul le -a zis: ,,Nu vă temeţi: căci vă aduc o veste bună, care va fi o mare bucurie pentru tot norodul: 11 astăzi în cetatea lui David, vi s’a născut un Mîntuitor, care este Hristos, Domnul. 12 Iată semnul, după care -L veţi cunoaşte: veţi găsi un prunc înfăşat în scutece şi culcat într’o iesle.„ 13 Şi deodată, împreună cu îngerul s’a unit o mulţime de oaste cerească, lăudînd pe Dumnezeu, şi zicînd:

14 ,,Slavă lui Dumnezeu în locurile prea înalte, şi pace pe pămînt între oamenii plăcuţi Lui.„

Vladimir Pustan – Cum trebuie sa ne pregatim de Craciun 

23 Decembrie 2012

Vladimir Pustan conclude la minutul 48: Scumpa este in fata lui Dumnezeu moartea celor iubiti de El. Eu mi-am invatat biserica nu numai cum sa traiasca, ci si cum sa moara. Muriti frumos! Nu muriti, cum au fost altii din biserica noastra, ca n-as mai vrea sa fiu langa ei cand au murit, langa asemenea oameni. „Frate,” zice, „ia-i de pe mine!” „Pe cine sa iau de pe tine?” Si erau frati de ai nostri, din biserica. „Ia-i de pe mine ca ma apasa, ia-i de pe mine ca ma iau”. „Cine?” „Cu fata ingrozita”. Cum ai trait, asa inchizi ochii.

Slobozeste Doamne pe robul Tau in pace, ca au vazut ochii mei mantuirea! Sa nu va slobozeasca Dumnezeu pana nu vedeti cu ochii vostri si mantuirea celor din casa voastra. Sa nu va slobozeasca Dumnezeu din cusca pamantului acesta pana nu veti vedea cu ochii vostri cum Dumnezeu lucreaza si-n biserica voastra. Prin ochii vostri sa faca Dumnezeu trezire aici in locul acesta. Cu voi, impreuna cu generatia aceasta de copii. Sa-i vedeti asezati in casa lui Dumnezeu si-n casa voastra.

Asa trebuie sa asteptam Craciunul, pentru ca noi nu asteptam Craciunul. Noi Il asteptam pe Isus Hristos.

shepherds in the field


The Birth of Jesus Luke 2:4-14

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehemthe town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

Oh Holy Night

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, the night when Christ was born;
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
O’er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friends.
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
With all our hearts we praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
His power and glory ever more proclaim.

A son’s piano Christmas medley for his dad

Uploaded by on Dec 23, 2009 (performed by a son for his father and for us, the public)

He writes: A compilation of Christmas carols and excerpts of well-known classical pieces. A contemplative, instrumental piece for those who would

enjoy 10 minutes of reflective time on our Savior’s birth. The idea was inspired by my dad, Hank Lankford, who had heard Beethoven’s 2nd movement of the Pathetique Sonata interwoven with Silent Night on the radio. When trying to recreate his idea, I decided to expound on this idea using a variety of Christmas hymns and classical pieces. This arrangement was my gift to my dad many years ago. It was also my father who suggested I record and put this on YouTube. With the help of my son, Chris, we did it! Here it is…. Merry Christmas, Dad. I love you!
