    In his opera Rinaldo was performed in London and was greeted so enthusiastically that Handel sensed Handel book possibility of continuing popularity and prosperity in England. A year after the work was completed, Handel received an invitation to perform his music in Dublin to which he joyously agreed.

Handel's Messiah was intended as a thought-provoking work for Easter and Lentbut it became more of a Christmastime tradition.
