TIL the tradition for standing during the hallelujah chorus of Handel's Messiah started because King George II stood during it at the first performance in England, and then everyone else had to stand up, and no one knows why George stood up.
This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 72%.
Whether it is done on the concert stage with a large chorus and symphony orchestra or by church choirs accompanied by a pipe organ, it is the part of Handel's Messiah that traditionally brings people to their feet. Prior to the premiere performance in Dublin, the management had asked ladies not to wear hoops and for men not to wear swords so that there would be room for more people. The London premiere was held at the Covent Garden Theatre, now the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden, on March 23, 1743, during the reign of George II. The theatrical location for the performance of a religious work was one of the criticisms by the press. After the initial lackluster reviews of the London premiere, he canceled some of the performances that were already scheduled. In 1750, the oratorio was presented in the chapel of London's Foundling Hospital as a charity performance. Regardless of the size of the orchestra or number of singers, whether it is performed on the concert stage or in a house of worship, and regardless of the reason why King George II stood up, protocol surrounding the Hallelujah Chorus continues a tradition that brings people to their feet.

"Even for prodigies, moments of black depression and self-doubt arise, and... even geniuses cannot see the future.."
I attended Music and the Spoken Word this morning with the youth in my ward. It was an incredible experience and I highly recommend it (but still go to your regular ward)! The "word" this morning was about George Frederic Handel's Messiah:
For more than 250 years, millions of people all over the world have marveled at the sound and majesty of George Frederic Handel's sacred oratorio Messiah. Composed in a burst of inspiration in only 23 days, it was first performed as an Easter offering in the spring of the 1742 in Dublin, Ireland. Since then, it has been performed thousands of times in every corner of the world, becoming one of the most popular pieces of music ever created. But it almost didn't happen at all. In 1741, the 56-year-old Handel had just suffered through a series of musical failures and had lost his royal patronage. Discouraged, he told his friend and collaborator, Charles Jennens, that he didn't plan on doing any more composing that year. As one writer observed, "Even for prodigies moments of black depression and self-doubt arise, and... even geniuses cannot see the future."(1) But Jennens believed he could persuade his friend to try again. He had compiled a scriptural text with the hope that Handel would apply "his whole Genius and Skill upon it." (2) Fortunately for us, and perhaps compelled by the subject of the text, Handel set pen to paper. Maybe Handel felt he could identify with the Man of sorrows, despised, and rejected, acquainted with grief.(3) Perhaps he resonated personally - as we all do - with the message of Messiah: that the "great light" of hope shines for all who "walked in darkness."(4) For Handel, Messiah seemed to be a turning point of sorts, a new beginning, a fresh start. Although during his 74 years he composed many operas, oratorios, cantatas, and choral works, his name will forever be associated with Messiah. It is fitting, then that near the end of his life, blind and in fragile health, Handel insisted on attending a performance of Messiah at Covent Garden on April 6, 1759.(5) Handel died just eight days later, but his music will live forever.
(1) Tim Slover, Messiah: The Little-Known Story of Handel's Beloved Oratorio (2007), 21. (2) In Messiah: The Little-Known Story, 29. (3) See Isaiah 53:3 (4) Isaiah 9:2 (5) See Jonathan Kandell, "The Glorious History of Handel's Messiah," Smithsonian, Dec. 2009 I was surprised to learn that Handel perhaps felt like a "failure" and, for at least a time was ready to give up composing. What loss that would have been to the rest of us!! Think of all the great men in the scriptures who at one time or another felt "low" or inadequate: Nephi - "O wretched man that I am! Yea, my heart sorroweth because of my flesh; my soul grieveth because of mine iniquities." Moses - "O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue." Moroni- "Lord, the Gentiles will mock at these things, because of our weakness in writing" What a shame it would have been if they had given in to their inadequacies and did nothing to improve or decided not to do what the Lord had commanded them. We certainly wouldn't have the record that we have today, that's for sure! I think everyone feels bouts of discouragement - like what we're doing just isn't good enough. We may say to ourselves, "everyone else has good things happening for them, so why aren't I?" Sometimes we let our inadequacies and our weaknesses weigh us down and make us feel worthless. But in reality, our weakness was given to us by a loving Heavenly Father who "give[s] unto men weakness that they may be humble; and [His] grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before [Him]; for if they humble themselves before [Him], and have faith in [Him], then will [He] make weak things become strong unto them." We see all too often the destructiveness that comes from pride and thinking, "I don't need anyone else." While we shouldn't seek to stand still and remain in our weakness; we should view our inadequacies as blessings because they give us humility, patience, and point us toward the Lord.
