Messiah, needless to say, is Handel’s most famous work, but it also caused considerable controversy during its first performances.
From the first aria for tenor, "Every valley shall be exalted" to the thunderous final "Amen" chorus, with the angels trumpeting the glory of God, Messiah is plentiful in melody, extensive in the range of emotions portrayed and very accessible even to the listener uninitiated in classical or choral/vocal music.

While it is true that George II stood during the singing of the mighty "Hallelujah" Chorus at the second London performance, Messiah did not enjoy the popularity of many of Handel's other oratorios during the composer's lifetime.

Across the span of 250 years, Messiah still holds its extraordinary grip on musician and audience member alike.

 Messiah (WebBible Encyclopedia) - ChristianAnswers.Net
The Greek form "Messias" is only twice used in the New Testament, in John 1:41 and 4:25 (R.V., "Messiah"), and in the Old Testament the word Messiah, as the rendering of the Hebrew, occurs only twice (Dan 9:25,26; R.V., "the anointed one").
The expectations of the Jews were thus kept alive from generation to generation, till the "fulness of the times," when Messiah came, "made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law." In him all these ancient prophecies have their fulfilment.
