In 1742 a German- born composer performed an oratorio in Dublin for the benefit of local hospitals. It featured only a small orchestra and a few male singers, and was not an initial success, but George Fredrick Handel had just written the “ Messiah”, celebrating the King of Kings and his own personal faith journey. Today is the festival of Christ the King. —-Stephen Hazlett
