MUSC 311: Music History
Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement
Composers can meet fame in their lives and after death, but no composer has garnered the extent of fame George Frideric Handel did after death. Handel reached an abundance of success in various cities before his death, and even more success in new cities and a new continent after he passed. His fame after death was kept alive through his audience’s efforts to celebrate, perform, and preserve his works millenniums after his death.
