Definition
British baroque composer (born in Germany) remembered best for his oratorio Messiah (1685-1759)
  • Overhead, Handel's March swelled pompously through the imitation stone vaulting, carrying on its waves the faded drift of the many weddings at which, with cheerful indifference, he had stood on the same chancel step watching other brides float up the nave toward other bridegrooms.
