Handel's Messiah -- the composer's monumental celebration of faith and the human experience -- boasts a chorus known by many people, but there's nothing quite like hearing the entire work's soaring grandeur live in person. And this is especially true when the composter's masterwork is performed by the New York Philharmonic. Handel completed the music for Messiah in just 24 days, and it's now been a holiday classic for almost 275 years -- not a bad return on investment for three-and-a-half weeks of work. Experience the piece's timeless beauty this season when it's performed in all its glory by the New York Phil at David Geffen Hall.
