Including color illustrations of the composer and paintings inspired by his works, this 1923 biography details Handel's life, works and legacy. Born in Germany in 1685, Handel was raised by parents who were indifferent to his musical aspirations. Strongly influenced by great Italian Baroque composers, Handel studied music in Hamburg and Italy before moving to London to begin his career. Within 15 years, he would start three commercial opera companies, create famous works like Alexander's Feast (1736) and Messiah (1742) and have his greatness recognized by English royalty.
