Publisher's Summary

Dublin, 1742: Jonathan Swift, ehrwürdiger Dekan der Dubliner St. Patricks Kathedrale, kann es nicht fassen: Im "Bulls Head" soll ein Oratorium mit Bibelversen zur Uraufführung kommen. Kirchenmusik an einem Ort, an dem sich die Leute betrinken und dumme Witze machen! Der Dekan beschließt, den berühmten Komponisten aufzusuchen, der hinter dieser Angelegenheit steckt.

In seinem Hörspiel erzählt Markus Vanhoefer, wie Georg Friedrich Händel von London nach Irland segelte, und von den bemerkenswerten Umständen, unter denen sein Oratorium zum ersten Mal erklang: "Der Messias", dessen "Halleluja"-Chor heute das meistgespielte Klassikstück der Welt ist.
