Handel's Messiah was first performed in Dublin in April, 1742. The soloists included Mrs. Cibbers, the actress, who sang the contralto part. The oratorio had a magnificent success, and it was repeated in the following June. So great was the crowd at the first performance that the ladies of the audience were asked to come without hoops, and men without swords. When the work was first given in England in the early part of 1743, at Covent Garden Theatre, it was practically a failure, although Samson, given at eight performances just before then, had been a triumphant success. Only when it was performed in the Foundling Hospital in 1750 did it win its way to the hearts of Londoners, and since then it is safe to say that it has been the most popular of all oratorios.
