Among these various choruses it is hardly necessary to say that the immortal 'Hallelujah,' from the 'Messiah,' stands in a class by itself. Beethoven said of Handel, 'Go to him and learn from his scores how to produce the greatest effects by the simplest means; when he chooses he can strike like a thunderbolt.' To illustrate the truth of these remarks one could hardly find a better example than the sublime 'Hallelujah' which exemplifies in a supreme degree the enormous results which Handel knew how to achieve by the simplest and most elemental methods.
