Messiah: He Gave His Back to the Smiters (Handel)

$2.59

This quiet alto aria about Christ's generosity towards his abusers is the B section of movement 23 of the Messiah. It was recorded separately so that it can be used alone, as a short and simple aria, or as a bridge to "He Was Despised" (Spiritrax 1208) as per Handel's original instructions.

Messiah: He Was Despised (Handel)

$4.59

A slow, moving aria for alto, Movement 23 of Handel's Messiah, describing Christ's sorrows. Strings gently weep in the accompaniment. As the A section is over five minutes in length, Handel's instructions to continue with a bridge and then repeat the A section in its entirety are rarely followed. This recording ends, like most, at the end of the A section; the bridge is available separately as Spiritrax 1209, "He Gave His Back to the Smiters".

Messiah: He Shall Feed His Flock Like a Shepherd (Handel)

$4.49

Movement 20 in Handel's Messiah is a gentle, flowing double aria for alto and soprano. The text describes how Jesus will protect his people. The alto sings the first half in F, and then the soprano takes over in Bb for the second half. Simple and beautiful. Could be done by one singer with a large range, but really perfect to feature two.

Messiah: Rejoice Greatly, O Daughter of Zion (Handel)

$4.95

Movement 18 of Handel's Messiah is a dramatic and involved aria for soprano. A fast major-key beginning and end require virtuosic singing, and the slow minor-key middle section gives the singer lots of room to be expressive. Orchestral direction reflects the London Philharmonic Orchestra recording.

Messiah: Pifa (Handel)

$3.95

Movement thirteen in Handel's Messiah is the only purely instrumental movement, without any singing at all. It's useful as an interlude, contemplative moment, or during an intermission. The title "Pifa" suggests shepherds' music played traditionally at Christmas by the Italian "pifferare" (pipers or shepherds).
