The Hallelujah (Aleluia) is part of the oratorio Messiah, which is the most famous work by the German composer Georg Friedrich Händel. Oratorio is a genre of musical composition basically sung, being widely used, besides the orchestra, vocal solos and choir. It generally narrates biblical themes.
The Messiah (HWV 56, 1741) is an oratorio about the life of Jesus Christ, the Messiah. It has 51 movements divided into three parts: the Prophecies about Jesus' birth, the Passion, and the Resurrection. The Hallelujah is the 42nd movement, at the end of the second part, where all the joy over the Messiah's victory over death and sin is demonstrated.
This work was composed by Handel for Easter, but it is usually performed at Christmas time as well. It is said that when the Messiah was performed in London, King George II, impressed by hearing the Hallelujah, stood up emotionally, giving rise to the custom of the audience standing up during the performance of this movement.
The present version presents the main theme of the work in a reduction for Xylophone with piano accompaniment with chords with ciphers, ideal for young music students to practice with their teachers for performance on the Easter holiday.
