Short History About Handel Saul Music Book “HWV 53”

Handel composed “Saul” as an oratorio in the year 1738. The plot closely reflects the Biblical account of David and Saul’s relationship. Handel’s overture is the longest of his introductions.

It is divided into four movements: an Allegro, a Largo (in which the organ can be used as a solo instrument), an Allegro, and a Minuetto (in which the organ can be used as a solo instrument).

It’s a charming and delicate prelude that serves as an appropriate precursor to the tragic narrative that follows. Saul, King of Israel; Jonathan, his son; Abner, commander of the host; David; Samuel’s apparition; Doeg, a servant; an Amalekite; Merab, Abiathar, and Michal, Saul’s daughters; the Witch of Endor; and the Israelites are among the figures mentioned.

The opening scene occurs in the Israelite camp, where the people sing a triumphant song against Goliath and the Philistines.

It consists of a chorus (“How excellent Thy Name, O Lord!”) that is a rousing tribute to praise; an aria (“How excellent Thy Name, O Lord!”) that is a moving homage to praise; and an aria (“How excellent Thy Name, O Lord!”) that is an (An Infant raised by Thy Command).

A duet in which the giant is portrayed as the “monster atheist,” marching forward to the strong and expressive music; and three final choruses (“The Youth inspired by Thee”), (“How wonderful Thy Name”), and a celebratory (“Hallelujah”), all were ending in plain but huge harmony.
