Handel's autograph score for the Messiah. Natuurlijk moet je ook je eigen muziek maken door de noten op te schrijven. En inderdaad soms krijg je dit op je blaadje te staan. Ik vind het wel leuk te zien dat andere ook net als mij gek te keer gaan op een muziek vel en duizend keer krassen. Titel: Handel's autograph score for the Messiah.

George Frideric Handel (1685 – 1759) was a German-born British Baroque composer, famous for his operas, oratorios, anthems and organ concertos. He received critical musical training in Halle, Hamburg and Italy before settling in London (1712) and becoming a naturalised British subject in 1727. By then he was strongly influenced by the great composers of the Italian Baroque and the middle-German polyphonic choral tradition.
