Georg Friedrich Händel (23 February 1685 - 14 April 1759) was a German-English Baroque composer, who is known for his operas, oratorios and concerts. Handel was born in Germany in the same year as Johann Sebastian Bach and Domenico Scarlatti. He received musical training in Italy before settling in London and received British citizenship. His works include Messiah, Water Music and Music for the Royal Fireworks. He was influenced by the great Italian Baroque composers and the English composer Henry Purcell. Many composers have known and been inspired by Handel's music, including Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven.
Handel composed 42 operas, 29 oratorios, more than 120 cantatas, trios and duets, numerous arias, chamber music pieces, a large number of other works, odes and serenades and 16 concerti for organ. His most famous work, the oratorio Messiah with the Hallelujah Chorus is among the most popular works for choir and has become a Christmas classic.
Handel's works are cataloged in the Händel-Werke-Verzeichnis and are often cited with a reference to that list in the form of a HWV number. Messiah has such number HWV 56
