Hallelujah Chorus from

Reduction for Organ Accompaniment

Notes
The Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s beloved oratorio, The
Messiah is one of the
Messiah, he staples of Baroque choral repertoire and has
appeared in countless editions, transcriptions
transcriptions and guises since its earliest
performances. The work found new life in the Classical period when
Mozart rescored it for the ‘modern’ orchestra
orchestra of his time. A perennial
favorite, its music sounds out in churches and concert halls around the
world, accompanied by instrumental ensembles of numerous descriptions
and sizes, and with its texts translated into countless languages
languages.
This keyboard reduction is notated for a three
three-manual
manual organ (wi
(with
pedal), and registration is suggested for terraced dymanics of mp, mf,, and f.
The above registration scheme can easily be adapted to a two-manual manual
instrument, or for piano accompaniment the bass line will be enhanced
when played in octaves.
octaves The addition of the interpretive marking leggiero is
editorial: it will in effect allow the chorus to be heard with a clarity and
transparency
transpare often characterisitic of Baroque performance practices.
