Handel created such compelling melodic and fluid music that it’s easy to overlook what is one of history’s great examples of “word painting.” The baroque era in music — roughly 1600 to 1750 — saw enormous interest in this technique of depicting a word’s meaning through music. A basic example is using dissonance to set the word “pain.” Even those who have sung “Messiah” aren’t always made fully aware of Handel’s continual crafting of music to express the words.
Steven Fox, the Music Director of The Pro Arte Chorale, is also the artistic director of Clarion Music Society in New York, and the music director for Musica Antiqua St. Petersburg in Russia. The Pro Arte Chorale, a 60-member volunteer chorus based in Ridgewood, is committed to enriching the lives of its members and its audience by exploring many musical traditions.
