Geroge Frideric Handel (1685-1759) was born Georg Friedrich Handel in Halle, Germany, but he spent most of his adult life in England where he became a subject of the British Crown at age 42 and adopted  the new spelling of his name by which he is know today.  By age 7 he was already a skillful pianist and organist.  His father wanted him to study law, which he did for a time, but he quit to follow his love of music.  He is famed for producing 42 Operas, 29 Oratorios, and more than 120 cantatas, trios and duets.  He wrote an anthem (Zadok the Priest) for the coronation ceremony of King George II (1727) which has been played for every British coronation ceremony since that time. Hit most enduring work is the "Messiah Oratorio" with its "Hallelujah" chorus.
