Deconstructing Handel's Messiah (Christmas Archive)
Handel’s Messiah is one of the most popular pieces of music in the world and one which - at least in the US - has become associated with Christmas. We’re going to dissect this great piece with a man who knew it well - the late Paul Oakley who first shared his musical expertise about The Messiah with us in 2002. We hear that conversation again and then share a little poem that captures the spirit of Christmas: A Cup of Christmas Tea when Charlotte Talks. Originally Aired 12/4/2002.
