George Friedrich Handel

Biography

German composer of oratorios, operas, concertos, cantatas, anthems and sonatas. He is known universally for his "Messiah," which he wrote in 25 days.

While composing his oratorio "Jephtha," his left eye suddenly failed him on 2/13/1751, perhaps from a stroke. He had suffered a stroke in 1737 and a less severe one six years later. In August 1752, he became totally blind. On 4/06/1759, at Covent Garden, Handel conducted his "Messiah" for the last time. After the sellout audience had left, the composer collapsed and was taken to his home. At 74, he was exhausted after conducting ten concerts in the month and he knew that the end was near. He said goodbye to his friends, and on 4/14/1759, London, he died.
