Workshopping Handel's 'And the Glory of the Lord'
Handel’s ‘And the Glory of the Lord’ from Messiah is the first of the GCSE Edexcel set works, and perhaps isn’t the stereotypical candidate for the whole-class workshopping model. A classroom full of guitarists, drummers and turntablists is hardly the most obvious ensemble with which to approach a Baroque oratorio! The real strengths of the workshopping model, however, are that it is flexible and can focus on musical concepts rather than context. Any music can receive the workshopping treatment with the right approach, and this resource seeks to give you some ideas to get going on this.
